'Back To God' - Reba McEntire

'Back To God' - Reba McEntire

Country superstar Reba McEntire is at her absolute best in this powerful single from her gospel project, 'Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope'. Co-written by Randy Houser and Dallas Davidson, this song lifts up God as the only solution to our world's troubles.


The impactful lyrics of ‘Back To God’ really speak to those who are broken-hearted. They remind us how powerful prayer is and how much we need our Heavenly Father, especially in times of pain. The music video also parallels the lyrics, showing people grieving but finding the hope to get through tragedy when they turn to God.

“Oh have you looked around
Have you heard the sound
Of Mama's cryin'
Or do you turn away
When you see the face
Of the innocent dyin'
In these darkest days
Are you not afraid
That it's too late

You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
'Cause we're still worth saving
Can't go on like this and live like this
We can't love like this
We gotta give this world back to God”

In times like this, God is the one we can turn to and give all our worries. When we are in the dark, He is the one that brings hope, even in times of despair. He is the Creator and the light that guides us each and every day. It is beautiful to hear Reba singing to the Lord and spreading the important message that she conveys in ‘Back To God.’

Psalms 147:3-5
3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. 4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
