Father, Sing Over Me

WORDS & MUSIC

Dennis Jernigan

March 27, 2018

Since my dad passed away in August of 2017, I have had a very difficult time. Just being real here. After he passed away, I had several good weeks where I felt tinges of grief and felt I was traversing the journey pretty well and then the first week of December hit and I began to experience panic attacks and many sleepless nights. Grief was overwhelming me and I had not expected it to be so overwhelming. Grief is the feeling of loss. Mourning is the outward expression of that loss and I was not doing so well at mourning. I finally began to get some relief as time passed by, but when March came around in 2018, I began to fall back down into the bottomless pit grief can become. Melinda had been fighting for me and holding me up emotionally, but by this time, she began to be overwhelmed by my emotional overloads. She began experiencing what is called compassion fatigue. She had come to the end of her ability to hold me up along with her own emotional needs. She basically told me she could not do it any more and that I needed to begin fighting for myself, to fight harder at digging myself out of the deep dark pit of emotional self pity. I needed to hear that. In a nutshell, this song was my way of fighting out of the darkness and what I have been challenging people to do for decades. I needed to practice what I preached! This has become my new go to song of deliverance. It also helps me to focus on the needs of others rather than on always having to focus on my own. My needs are met when I seek to meet the needs of others. This song is dedicated to my wife, Melinda. Thanks for fighting for me and for fighting the enemy with me. I love you.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5:4 NASB

You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
Psalm 32:7 NASB

Verse

;You are Living Water in a dry and weary land

In the shaking times You're Solid Rock where I can stand

When the storms of life come You're a Shelter over me


You are Light in darkness Watching over me
In the times of wounding You come healing me

When fear would come surrounding

You come singing over me


Chorus

Father, sing over me when I'm losing it!

Father, sing over me when I'm wounded!

Father, sing over me with Your presence!

Father, sing over me with Your love!


Father, sing over me love unending!

Father, sing over me! I'm surrendering!

Father, sing over me with Your presence!


Father, sing over me!

Father, sing over me!

Father, sing over me!
