Josh Wilson, “Carry Me”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Josh Wilson, who scored a number one hit with Jesus is Alive and a Top 3 hit with I Refuse, among other hits, has released the uptempo track, Carry Me as the carrier single of his upcoming album, out April 9th in digital and compact disc formats across the United States and the rest of the world. The track releases on February 19th on iTunes.

Carry Me has a bright future ahead of it. Already the song is one of the most-added tracks this week on Christian AC and Christian CHR; it seems to be destined to fight for the top against Hawk Nelson’s Words. Written by Wilson in light of several panic attacks that the singer had in months leading to the release of the single, it’s an encouraging prayer of how God can carry us through the most difficult of times. Brilliant single.

CARRY ME Lyrics
Josh Wilson

I try to catch my breath
It hasn’t happened yet
I’m wide awake in the middle of the night scared to death
So I prayed, “God, would You make this stop
Father please hold on to me
You’re all I’ve got!”

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I’m ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God carry me, carry me, carry me now

Jesus calm my heart
Come near me, please
Lord don’t let these worries get the best of me
Oh I believe, that You’re still here with me
Cause You meant what You said when You said You’d never leave

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I’m ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God carry me, carry me, carry me now

Carry me
God carry me
Carry me
God carry me

I’m at the end of myself
I know I’ve got nothing left
Feels like I’m stuck in the valley of the shadow of death
And I’ve been down here so long
I just can’t find my way out
Oh God I don’t stand a chance
Unless You carry me now
God carry me now

Carry me, carry me, carry me now
From my sinking sand to Your solid ground
The only way I’m ever gonna make it out
Is if You carry me, carry me, carry me now
God carry me, carry me, carry me now

Carry me now
Carry me now
Carry me now
Carry me now
