And that’s what we feel as we listen to “Safe In My Father’s Arms” by Sanctus Real. True to it’s title, it’s a song that reassures us of the Father’s unconditional love – no matter what season in life we are going through at the moment, we are always safest in our Heavenly Father’s arms.
“It was during a particular season of walking through so many unknowns when this song was written,” shares guitarist Chris Rohman. “We had to take a moment and look back so we could see the path God had brought us down. Once we did that, we wanted to write a song that expressed the joy we felt knowing God had been with us through it all and what it feels like to be held so lovingly by Him.”
Rohman also shares that the song was inspired by Psalm 68:5-6, which proclaims:
Father to the fatherless, defender of widows–
this is God, whose dwelling is holy.
God places the lonely in families;
he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
