Citizens are another brilliant worship band from Mars Hill in Seattle. This song, Oh God, was written one night when lead singer Zach Bolen was led by the Holy Spirit to open up to the end of Romans Chapter 8 - "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

That's where the inspiration for this song came from and it's easy to notice the influence in the lyrics. This song is so raw with emotion and the recording really captures the intimacy between God and the lyricist.

Lyrics:
In the valley, Oh God, you're near
In the quiet, Oh God, you're near
In the shadow, Oh God, you're near
At my breaking, Oh God, you're near

Oh God, you never leave my side
Your love will stand firm for all my life

In my searching, Oh God, you're near
In my wandering, Oh God, you're near
When I feel alone, Oh God, you're near
At my lowest, Oh God, you're near

Height nor depth nor anything else
Could pull us apart
We are joined as one by your blood
Hope will rise as we become more
Than conquerors through
The one who loved the world
