'We Won't Be Shaken' by Building 429

Tiffanie's Take

“We Won’t Be Shaken” from Building 429 sings like an anthem, a battle cry of sorts. It’s one of those turn the radio up and turn your steering wheel into a drum kit kind of songs. 
 
'Whatever tomorrow brings, together we'll rise and sing that we won't be shaken, no we won't be shaken!' 
 
Every time I hear those words, I sing them out and think, “YES!! I won’t be shaken! It doesn’t matter what is thrown at me next, I won’t let it shake me!” And then something happens that tries to shake me and it can be hard to stand firm. 
 
In life, there are little shakes, like a rainy wedding day or a missed flight. There are also big shakes, like a layoff at work or a crushing diagnosis from a doctor. Things will not always go the way we plan.  We will face situations that will frustrate, challenge, and disappoint us. What’s important as we go through life is to remember that we are not going through anything alone, God is with us always. Even though we don’t know what’s ahead, God does, and His plans are greater than ours. 
 
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” If something is trying to shake you today, remember that you can stand strong. You can hold on to the truth that God has a plan for your life that is good. Turn up “We Won’t Be Shaken” and make it your anthem!

"We Won't Be Shaken" Lyrics
 

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know You go before me and I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
The way seems so unclear
But I know that You go with me so I will never fear
I will trust in You

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
No we won't be shaken

You know my every longing
You've heard my every prayer
You've held me in my weakness
Cause You are always there
So I'll stand in full surrender
It's Your way and not my own
My mind is set on nothing less
Than You and You alone
I will not be moved oh

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken

We will trust in You
We will not be moved
We will trust in You
And we won't be shaken
[x3]

No we won't be shaken

Whatever will come our way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
No we won't be shaken
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
Oooh oooh oh
No we won't be shaken
