Music Monday: Demon Hunter – “I Will Fail You”

This particular song really grabbed my attention and the lyrics really speak for themselves. Because I am human, I am a failure to someone. That someone could be my wife, kids, boss, parent, friend, or most of all myself. But even in the midst of my failure, there is one who will never fail and that is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31:8 (emphasis added)

The followup video is an explanation of what the song means to writer and lead vocalist, Ryan Clark.  Demon Hunter is an incredible metal band who’s members are devout Christians. DH is and have always been one of my favorites. The song “I Will Fail You” is track #5 from their latest album, Extremist.

“I Will Fail You” Lyrics

These quiet words, they carry me away … Returning
They keep coming back
In idle thoughts and hollow cut-aways … Disarm me
No will to attack

Though the sorrow and fear they may depart you today

I will fail you
Of that I’m sure
I will remind you of the pain forevermore
And when my sins are just a memory
Faith restored
I will fail you
To the core

Lost in the shadow of an endless grace … Relentless
My reign is unbound
In this abandon I will devastate … Dismember
Till agony’s found

Though the sorrow and fear they may depart you today

I will fail you
Of that I’m sure
I will remind you of the pain forevermore
And when my sins are just a memory
Faith restored
I will fail you
To the core

I know they prey upon me
I feel them just beyond my door

I will fail you
Of that I’m sure
I will remind you of the pain forevermore
And when my sins are just a memory
Faith restored
I will fail you
To the core
