“Anxious Heart” Lyrics

Locked up and I’m so in my head
Heart starts racing and I can’t slow it down
Hands shaking and I’m losing my breath
Paralyzed with a mind spinning out

My strength has grown weak
No words left to speak
I fall to my knees
Cause I know what I need

You are the light when my world goes dark
You hold me together when I’m torn apart
And when my thoughts have run way too far
You’re the calm for my anxious heart

Wrapped up in the arms of Your love
Stilled by the silence above all the noise
Burden’s light when You’re lifting it up
Fears terrified by the sound of Your voice

Cause You don’t grow weak
Your word is peace
I fall to my knees
Cause I know what I need

You know everything about me
You come and surround me
And everything that holds my soul
Falling in surrender
Learning to remember
You’re the One who’s in control

You are the life when my breath is gone
You are the hope when I’m stuck in the storm
And I know this is still who You who are
You’re the calm for my anxious heart
