Usually I’m not a fan of turning pop radio love songs into worship songs. The idea just screams “SNL church lady.” But, at the risk of sounding cheesy, I REALLY wish this Lady Antebellum song was a worship song.  It makes much more sense that this song be directed toward God, and it’s very sing-able (which is good for corporate worship).

I’m posting my version of the lyrics, which is only slightly modified from the original. The word “baby” could be replaced with Jesus, but I’d be just as happy if “baby” word was omitted all-together. In my heart, I sing this song as a worship song.

I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you [Jesus]
And when it all starts coming undone
You’re the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin’ right on through
And your love’s the only truth
That’s why I run to you
