I wrote this song during a time where I was coming to experience God as "Father" for the first time. When I wrote this song, I realized that I had been living as an orphan. I had been trying to do life on my own, apart from my Father. And I realized that all He wanted me to do was be His Daughter. I was in a place where I was receiving so much revelation as to what it meant to be His Daughter and He was completely restoring my identity in that area. I wrote this song because it was actually something that God was singing over me when I was going through that process with Him. Through that process, He also gave me a huge passion to sing His fatherly heart over other people. I became passionate about seeing other people receiving their identities as I had through experiencing Him as Father.

All profits from this EP will be going to Agape International, and orphanage I personally visited in Hyderabad, India.


Orphaned one, lift up your eyes
I've given you my name
You are mine

I know well the sound of your cries
And you won't be denied
For I'm by your side

For all my glory will shine upon your face
My justice and my mercy
Will reign over this place
Oh, my love, my love
Will find you where you are

I've placed my beauty as a crown upon your head
I'll exchange your filthy garments
You'll be clothed in white instead
Oh, my love, my love
Will find you where you are
