Big Daddy Weave
This Is What We Live For
Written by Rachael on 10th October 2020
“This Is What We Live For” is taken from the latest album by Big Daddy Weave called “When The Light Comes”. The music video takes the song’s message to hear, embrace and act upon what we’ve been called to through three stories interwoven with Big Daddy Weave’s musical performance. The first story takes us to an Eastern Europe hospital, the second to an urban city among the homeless, and the third to Africa. These emotional depictions illustrate that we are called to where our neighbors are and to love them in word and action.
What can I do with this fire on the inside?
I’m burnin’ up with a truth I can’t hide
You’re the reason for this hope in my life
I’m gonna let it shine
I have to let it shine
