Stay with Me by Jekalyn Carr

I heard this song for the first time almost a week ago, and I have listened to it almost every day since.

Jeklayn Carr shares that she desires for God to be the company in her life that never has to go home. It is easy for people to overstay their welcome in our homes, but there are a few people who can stay as long as they like without a complaint from us. This is who I desire Christ to be in the lives of ALL humanity; that He would come into our lives, every day visiting with us, and never feeling that we want Him to leave. Below is the YouTube video of “Stay With Me” by Jekalyn Carr and the lyrics are underneath it. My hope is that this song will bless you in ways you didn’t know you needed and that its lyrics will pull on your heart’s desire for Christ to draw closer and closer to you.

Do you desire that He stay with you?

God Bless.

Stay With Me by Jekalyn Carr

So, this song right here, means a lot to me
And I was traveling and God began to speak to me
He said, “When you think about company, they come over to your house
At some point because they are company, they have to go.”
He said, “But with me,
I want to be the person who can stay with you and
For the rest of your life.”
So, my prayer was to God:
You are the company that never have to leave me
So, I need You to stay with me

How can I live? How can I move?
How can I be, without You?
How can I stand, in the midst of pain?
I can’t go on, without You

You are the company that doesn’t have to go
So, stay with me

I’m broken before You
Please don’t leave ’cause I need You
I’m empty if I don’t have You
So, stay with me
I lift my heart to Thee
You are my high victory
I can’t imagine life without You
So, stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

How can I live? How can I move?
How can I be, without You?
How can I stand, in the midst of pain?
I can’t go on, without You

You are the company that doesn’t have to go
So, stay with me

I’m broken before You
Please don’t leave ’cause I need You
I’m empty if I don’t have You
So, stay with me
I lift my heart to You
You are my high victory
Can’t imagine life without You
So, stay with me
I’m broken before You
Please don’t leave ’cause I need You
I’m empty if I don’t have You
So, stay with me
I lift my heart to You
You are my high victory
Can’t imagine life without You
Stay with me

Can you lift your hands and say: Stay? (stay with me)
Lord, I need You to stay with me (stay with me)
Somebody tell Him, stay with me (stay with me)
Oh, ’cause we need You, Lord (stay with me)
Say, stay with me (stay with me)
You have to  (stay with me)
Oh, stay with me (stay with me)
Yeah, yeah…

I’ll do whatever it takes, to keep You here with me
It don’t matter how much it costs, ’cause I need You here with me
I’ll lay down my will for You, ’cause I need You here with me, oh Lord
I’ll give whatever You require of me, I need You here with me, Lord
So…

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

Now right here, you ought to open up your mouth
And tell Him how much you need Him
Tell Him how much you need Him tonight, oh

I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You, Lord
I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You
I can’t imagine my life without You

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

I don’t know about nobody else up in here
But, I need God to stay with me (stay with me)
You oughta, you oughta, you oughta lift your hands
Lift your hands towards heaven
And if it’s your prayer tonight
Open your mouth and tell Him

Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

Lift up your voice, lift up your voice
And let Him know how much you need Him
Let Him know how much you need Him
You don’t have to leave, You don’t have to leave
Stay with me, Jesus, stay with me, Jesus
‘Cause I need You, I need You

I need You, Lord
I’m just wondering if there’s somebody out there
Who don’t mind breaking yourself loose
And crying out to your master, “Here I am, Lord”
Whatever You need me to do
Whatever You want me to do
My answer is yes
My answer is yes
Open up your mouth
Open up your mouth
Lift up your voice and cry out to Him…
