I don’t know why I’ve never really focused on the lyrics of this almost two year old song before now, but after privately listening to the lyrics of Lauren Daigle’s “You Say,” I can understand why more than 150 million people have watched the music video for the song on YouTube.

Her words are powerful, soothing, uplifting and glorifies the amazing, transformative power of God.

It’s even making people like Jeff Miller believe.

“I’m not really a Bible or church person but this song it’s absolutely amazing and I get goosebumps every time I listen to it!!! I’m starting to believe…,” he wrote in the comments section of the video of the song on YouTube.

People like Margie De La Luz shared how the song helped her recently as she battled the coronavirus which has killed more than 87,000 people across the country.

“I listened to this song over and over when I got sick with COVID-19. It gave me hope and reminded me how big my faith is. Thank you and I’m 100% recovered,” she wrote.

For others like John Egan the song has helped him cope with chronic illness.

“I was struck one day about a year ago when I heard this song, quickly writing down Lauren’s name so I could look this song up on YouTube. The video is captivating and, in my opinion, the song keenly exhibits God, to whom she sings. The lyrics, her voice and my interpretation of the song helps me cope day by day with my ALS for which I was diagnosed 2 years ago. Thank you for this beautiful song Lauren!” Egan wrote.

And Daigle says she is happy to have been used by God to bring comfort to so many people through her song.

“I still come back to this video to read your stories of hope, loss, uncertainty, sadness, joy… but however you connect with this song, I’m so grateful that it has had such an impact on you. Thank you so much for listening,” she wrote to fans about two months ago.

You Say

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity, (ooh oh)

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe

Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure God, and You’ll have every victory, (ooh oh)

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

Oh I believe (I), yes I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh I believe (oh)
