Video and Lyrics: Wanted

Danny Gokey promo for Wanted

With the third song available from his upcoming album Haven’t Seen It Yet, we have “Wanted”. Here is what Danny says about this new song: (Available now HERE.)

“This song means a lot to me because it was written from God’s perspective to those who have been hurt by so many things in life that they couldn’t control and as a result, they feel lost, damaged or unworthy. If this is you, the Father has your heart and he wants to restore it! His love goes so far beyond what you can imagine and he wants you to know that you ARE wanted! I pray that message sinks deep into the hearts of those who are hurting.”

“Wanted”

I was there the moment that it happened
But you couldn’t see me through the pain
I caught every tear as they were falling
When you lost your heart that day
Yeah, you lost your heart that day
Now you only see through broken lenses
Trying to keep your head above the shame
You believe the lie that I am distant
But I hold you every day
Yeah, I hold you every day
If you could see it through my eyes
You’d know that you are wanted
You’d know that you are wanted
And if you’d let my love inside
I’ll show you that you’re wanted
I’ll show you that you’re wanted
You’re more than all your darkest moments
You are defined by what I see
You’re my reflection, you’re my treasure, you’re my heartbeat
Oh, child, you belong to me, ohh
‘Cause if you would see it through my eyes
You’d know that you are wanted
You’d know that you are wanted
And if you’d let my love inside
I’ll show you that you’re wanted
I’ll show you that you’re wanted, oh
Not rejected, not unwelcome
You’re wanted (You’re wanted)
Oh, you’re wanted (You’re wanted)
Not abandoned, not forgotten
You’re wanted
Oh, you’re wantedI’m right here in this moment
And I’m singing over you
Yeah, I’m singing over you, oh-oh
If you could see it through my eyes
You’d know that you are wanted (You are wanted)
You’d know that you are wanted
And if you’d let my love inside
I’ll show you that you’re wanted
I’ll show you that you’re wanted

  2. I went to itunes to download “ Havent seen it yet. “ Ended up downloading 5 pf your songs. They all really touched me. Ive been sitting with a dying uncle for over 2 weeks now. Hearing everyones stories and woes Leaning more and more into God trying NOT to get into their business end. Taking care of a 92 very feisty lady at night And trying to figure out how to pray for ALL thats going on. Your music brought tears which ive needed to release. Not for my Uncle or client… but those around them. Thankyou for delivering the messages that Gods giving you. Ill be keeping my sights and ears open for more. God bless you

  4. Comment on Danny Gokey’s song Wanted
    27 March 2020

    I was at my lowest, on the floor sobbing when this song went straight to the core of me. Brought me to the healing tears. I’ve gone through my entire life thinking I was never good enough and didn’t know why. Constantly guarded and pushing people away. Time after time. Believing in God, but relentless with questioning my faith; why was I never wanted? After trying SO HARD, doing everything right, following directions, pleasing others, caring for others, putting others first. Asking how is God so amazing and good and other people could live with peace and joy but yet somehow I could not. As time went by, I was just surviving, only existing in my marriage, only going through the motions with my two beautiful children, pushing away my loving husband and STILL not knowing how to satisfy that yearning for intimacy with God; always feeling too damaged to deserve to be wanted. Preserving that raw space of emptiness, loneliness believing I could never have true acceptance. Bitterness, resentment, fear, anger, shame, that was my identity. Knowing now it was in no way my fault, yet my shattered heart was too fragile to become whole. It was God speaking through the song in the darkest place of my soul that I never let anyone get to that allowed me to feel wanted. It was He who was singing over me. Somehow this song FINALLY allowed me to FEEL it. It was Miraculous. Grateful this song was written. I will never forget it. As if it was meant for me after 40 years of pain. The most emotional song of my life. Thank you Danny and everyone who contributed.😌🙏🏼❤️

  5. Thanks for sharing Kristy. It’s wonderful to hear how your life is now open to accept the love around you.

  6. You’ve no idea how this song connected with me. One line has specific wording that related in a big way. Made me think that God had it written that way to catch my attention.
    I do know I am wanted by God, but wrestling with the doubts somedays due to my circumstances is a battle.
    Thank your for the reassurance.
