Original Music: Called My Name

written by Kristen Yeo

I wrote this song while thinking back about my life before encountering the Lord. I was so caught up with worldly successes and the expectations i had on myself. in the midst of all these, I refused to turn to God for help and instead chose to rely on my own strength. everything fell apart when I started experiencing anxiety attacks. I felt so helpless and that was when I cried out to Jesus to save me. 

Today, I can say that I have come to know the Lord deeply but the reality is that sometimes I still struggle to choose Jesus. but I want to claim, through this song, that even though I fall, God’s never-failing love for me enables me to rise again. it is also my promise to God that I will trust in Him no matter the season, and no matter how difficult it is to. I am reminded that He has called my name and saved me time and time again! so truly, nothing is impossible with Him.


Lyrics:

Lord I stand here before you, overburdened by my sins.
I have failed to place you before the earthly treasures,
now I am broken and tattered. 

but when I tremble and I fall
Lord teach me how to rise again
for there is hope in the cross.
and nothing else will matter
cause I live for You and You alone.
though I am lost, still I will sing,

I trust You with all my heart
though it seems like this road has no end.
You walk beside me, I will not fear,

You restore and revive my life.
turn my eyes from worthless things,
drench my soul with Your love.
You called my name, I am set free,
by your wounds I am healed. 

How foolish I was straying away,
only seeking answers from this world.
I have failed to see that You are the
great I Am,
but You still love me as Your own. 

So when I tremble and I fall
Lord teach me how to rise again
for there is hope in the cross.
and nothing else will matter
cause I live for You and You alone.
though I am lost, still I will sing,

I trust You with all my heart
though it seems like this road has no end. 

You walk beside me, I will not fear,
You restore and revive my life.
turn my eyes from worthless things,
drench my soul with Your love.
You called my name, I am set free,
by your wounds I am healed. 

Lord renew my soul again,
teach me with Your song.
there is nothing I can do without Your strength.
Lord help me see the good
through the raging stormy seas,
for I am strong and empowered by Your grace. 

I trust You with all my heart
though it seems like this road has no end.
You walk beside me, I will not fear,
You restore and revive my life.
turn my eyes from worthless things,
drench my soul with Your love.
You called my name, I am set free,
by your wounds I am healed.
