As Jenn drove Brian back from the hospital, she began to sing “you’re gonna be ok.” She was singing it to herself, over Brian, and over her three children. Brian was recovering from a nervous breakdown and during that difficult time, Jenn clung to the verses in Lamentations—the “worst” is never the worst.

This song was written as a prophetic statement—Jenn felt that in writing this song, it could save people; even people who thought of suicide could be filled with hope without knowing what tomorrow holds.

“When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions: Wait for hope to appear. Don’t run from trouble. Take it full-face. The ‘worst’ is never the worst” (Lamentations 3:28-30, The Message).

 

You’re Gonna Be Ok

I know it’s all you’ve got to just be strong
And it’s a fight just to keep it
together, together
I know you think that you’re too far gone
But hope is never lost, hope is never lost
Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

I know your heart is heavy from those nights
Just remember that you are
a fighter, a fighter
You never know just what tomorrow holds
And you’re stronger than you know,
stronger than you know

And when the night is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end,
it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
