Anne Wilson - My Jesus

Listen to this performance by Anne Wilson of her song ‘My Jesus.’

“Are you past the point of weary? Is your burden weighin' heavy? Is it all too much to carry?
Let me tell you 'bout my Jesus. Do you feel that empty feeling? 'Cause shame's done
All its stealin', and you're desperate for some healin', let me tell you 'bout my Jesus
He makes a way where there ain't no way, rises up from an empty grave”

This incredible song was written after Anne Wilson experienced the great loss of her brother, Jacob, when he died from a horrific car accident.

"It was so tragic," Anne Wilson said. "He was my best friend. That's actually how I started singing and how I got into music, and that's why I wrote the song 'My Jesus.'"

The song also relates to many other people who have suffered a loss, and Anne Wilson shared about the stories that people have told her when it comes to how much the song means to them.

"I've had a lot of really incredible responses to that song," she said. "The ones that stand out are really stories of people saying they lost a loved one years ago, and that they turned away from the Lord and that they resented God. They were angry at Him, and when this song came out, they all of a sudden let go of their anger towards the Lord. I think there's something really hard about losing a loved one. When you lose a loved one, you have to learn how to trust God. This song, 'My Jesus,' is encouraging people to do that. It's just a really powerful thing for me."

We hope that you enjoyed listening to this performance of ‘My Jesus’ by Anne Wilson today!
