Dara MacLean, “Wanted”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Dara MacLean has released Wanted as her comeback single after a successful debut. Suitcases and Yours Forever were both Christian AC hits – the latter even bigger on Christian Soft AC – and her unique voice has become a fixture on Christian radio. Wanted is an encouraging song that can help lift a person up from even the deepest doldrums. I personally loved this song the minute I heard it! It’s currently in the Top 30 of the Christian AC chart and rising, so here’s hoping that radio picks up on this terrific toe-tapper of a song.

Dara MacLean

From the day you were born
And took your first breath
You opened your eyes and in came the light
He was watching you
But all of your life you couldn’t shake the lies in your head
Saying you’re a mistake
Oh but you were made
By a God who knows your name
He doesn’t make mistakes

You are wanted
To every broken heart, He stands with open arms
You are wanted
To every searching soul, look to the rising sun
If you’re lonely, hurting, gone too far
To the outcast you come as you are
For you, you are wanted, you, you are wanted
You, you are wanted, you, you are wanted

Let this be the day that joy takes the place
Of all of the years that shame tried to steal away
He is calling you
Lift your eyes to see His face
Come run into the arms of grace


You, you have been marked
You’re set apart
And He calls you His
So you don’t have to search
Don’t have to look for where you belong

You are wanted
