'Why God' Austin French Official Music Video

Contemporary Christian artist Austin French touches hearts all over the world with his latest single, ‘Why God.’


From his new album, ‘Wide Open’ Austin is tackling some of the harder questions of life. This moving song poses many of the questions believers are asked. Austin’s unique voice belts these emotional lyrics.

“Why God
Do people have to die?
A daughter or a son
Sudden and so young
Long before their time?”

When speaking about the inspiration behind the song, a few questions came to Austin’s mind. “Why God do people have to die? Why does tragedy still have a place in the life of a Christian? Why another school shooting? God why? Are you even here? Are you with us? These are real questions that inspired my song ‘Why God’ on my upcoming record.”

“Why God, I need You
It's, why God, I run to Your arms
Over and over again
It's, why God, I cling to Your love
And hold on for dear life
And I find, You are right by my side”

God truly works in mysterious ways and we do not always understand the reasons.

That’s exactly the sentiments that Austin French shared. He said, “In those moments there’s tons of things in this life that we do not understand, but maybe we’re not supposed to. Maybe we’re supposed to need God, need a father who knows all things and holds all things in his hands. And that’s ok.”

These lyrics serve as a reminder for us all that God is the source of our comfort and strength.
