“Song in the Desert”

Released April, 2024

This is a song for all those who feel stuck in a dry place spiritually. It’s for those seasons when you’re not sure where God is or how to meet Him. I’ve been through a number of those seasons in my life, and as the years passed, I’ve learned some things. The desert is a place to meet God in a way that changes you. It’s a place to learn to trust Him and prepare for the battles we’ll face as we enter the promised land. It’s a place of going deeper with Him!

So how do you meet God when you can’t seem to find Him anywhere? You worship. You meditate on who He is and all that He is, and bit by bit, He shows you more of Himself as He invites you to come up the mountain. This song is for that journey from the desert wilderness to the mountain of God.

“Song in the Desert”

Words and music: Katie M. Peters

I’ve got nothing, Lord, but You
Here’s my restless soul
I’m reaching for You
In this dry and barren desert
I trust in all You are
You’re the One who has living water for my soul

I’m singing this love song to You
I’m giving You all I am in worship
I am pouring the love in my heart and my soul on You
Over and over again
You’re the breath of my spirit, the light of my path
You’re the anchor that holds me through storms raging past
You’re my refuge so I’ll sing of all You are

In this desert place again
What has happened, Lord?
Have I wandered from You?
Hold me close within Your mercy
Your faithfulness is true
I’ve been here before, so I know what I will do

I’m slipping into Your presence and seeking Your face
Letting go and just falling into Your embrace
While You sing over me, and You whisper Your love to my heart

I’m singing this love song to You
I’m giving You all I am in worship
I am pouring the love in my heart and my soul on You
Over and over again
You’re the breath of my spirit, the light of my path
You’re the anchor that holds me through storms raging past
You’re my refuge so I’ll sing of all You are

You are good to me
You are Truth for me
You are Life in me
Jesus
You are hope for me
You are Peace in me
You bring joy to me
Jesus
(repeat)

I’m singing this love song to You
I’m giving You all I am in worship
I am pouring the love in my heart and my soul on You
Over and over again
You’re the breath of my spirit, the light of my path
You’re the anchor that holds me through storms raging past
You’re my refuge so I’ll sing of all You are
You’re my refuge so I’ll sing of all You are

You are good to me
You are Truth for me
You are Life in me
Jesus
