  • Deserts grow cold
    Rivers run dry
    We give up on each other without thinking twice
    Hope gets lost
    Can't see the dawn
    When the storm just won't let up, give us the faith to carry on
    When we get scared
    Let this be our prayer

    God keep us safe, safe tonight
    Keep our eyes toward the skies
    Send down an army of angels
    To make us brave
    And keep us strong and unafraid
    God keep us safe

    We walk a thousand steps in the wrong direction
    Broken and bruised, wearing tattered shoes
    Asking Him a thousand questions
    But we go on
    Trying to get back home
    And through the struggles and the troubles I know we don't walk alone
    Even when we get lost through the valleys we crossed

    God keep us safe, safe tonight
    And keep our eyes toward the skies
    Send down an army of angels
    To make us brave
    And keep us strong and unafraid
    God keep us safe
    God keep us safe

    Oh God keep us safe
    Unafraid
    And keep our eyes on the heavens and give us grace
    Send us an army of angels
    To make us brave
    Keep us strong and unafraid
    Keep us strong and unafraid
    God keep us safe
    And keep us safe Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, HILLARY LINDSEY, LUKE LAIRD, SHANE MCANALLY
