Album: III
Release: 2018

Details: From the lyrics of the song, this is like the “Even When It Hurts” version of Hillsong Y&F declaring God is present to our life on both highs and lows. While Hillsong United speaks about personal Y&F speaks how God works on us in both situation.

So it is like either acknowledging him or not, he will still work in us. This is why either good or bad people they are still living. Mathew 5:45, “He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” 

Intro
Bb-Dm-Eb-Bb

Verse 1
                 Bb
When it feels like the dark
                                             Dm
Lingers longer than the night
                                                Eb
When the shadows feel like giants
                                  Bb
Are You chasing me down?

Verse 2
                 Bm
Tell me where could I run
                                                          Dm
From Your light, where could I hide
                                              Eb
Hemmed within Your precious thoughts
                                                      Bb
There’s no hiding from Your love

Chorus 1
Gm
Highs and lows
                                                     Eb
Lord, You’re with me either way it goes
                                              Bb
Should I rise or should I fall
Gm
Even so
                                             Eb
Lord, Your mercy is an even flow

You’re too good to let me go

Verse 3
                   Bb
Should I dance on the heights
                                                      Dm
Or make my bed among the depths
                                                  Eb
Your mercy waits at every end
                                                       Bb
Like You planned it from the start

Verse 4
                        Bb
Should the dawn come with wings
                                               Dm
Or find me far-side of the sea
                                           Eb
There Your hand still fastens me
                                      Bb
Ever closer to Your heart, ooh

Should I rise or should I fall

Lord, Your mercy is an even flow

Should I rise or should I fall

You’re too good to let me go
