Francesca Battistelli, “Giants Fall”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Francesca Battistelli has released Giants Fall from the deluxe edition of her latest album, If We’re Honest. The legs of this album are absolutely incredible. After birthing four straight Top 10 hits–Write Your Story, He Knows My Name, Holy Spirit, and If We’re Honest, there’s a fifth single off the album, and it’s just as good as the previous four, showcasing Battistelli’s immense writing talent and the sheer quality of this album (which was rightfully nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, but unfortunately lost to the equally delicious Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong by For King and Country).

Giants Fall is an inspiring mid-tempo praise party jam that reminds us that with God, anything is possible. Immediately catchy and delightfully easy to sing–the mark of great songs–Giants Fall also boasts of a melody that will not quit. The lyric video takes inspiration from the story of young world-changer Mallory Fundora, who is serving the poor youth of Uganda. What an incredible story to boot; Battistelli is not averse to sharing these life stories, these testimonies of God’s goodness, and it’s handled in a respectful way that doesn’t sideline the story and leave the song empty-handed.

Altogether, another brilliant effort from the equally brilliant Battistelli.

GIANTS FALL Lyrics
Francesca Battistelli

Everyone’s telling you
To let go of what you’re holding to
It’s too late, too far
You’re too small, it’s too hard
Throwing water on that spark
Living deep inside your heart
With oceans of reasons
The things you’re not seeing
But oh, maybe they don’t
Know what you know
That you’re not alone

Don’t you be afraid
Of giants in your way
With God you know that anything’s possible
So step into the fight
He’s right there by your side
The stones inside your hand might be small
But watch the giants fall

We could really live like this
Can’t you imagine it
So bold, so brave
With childlike faith
Miracles could happen
Mountains would start moving
So whatever you may face

Don’t you be afraid
Of giants in your way
With God you know that anything’s possible
So step into the fight
He’s right there by your side
The stones inside your hand might be small
But watch the giants fall

Ask and believe
You’re gonna see
The hand of God in every little thing

Don’t you be afraid
Of giants in your way
With God you know that anything’s possible
So step into the fight
He’s right there by your side
The stones inside your hand might be small
But watch the giants fall

Miracles can happen
Anything is possible
Watch the giants fall
