Over the past year, "Lord, I Need You" by Matt Maher has joined the regular song rotation in churches all across America. It's a simple, but powerful assertion of our child-like need for a Father.

In this video, Louisiana native Lauren Daigle offers her take on the song, and though she's just accompanied by a single acoustic guitar, her smoky voice fills the empty space. The result is a raw and soulful rendition of this song that's normally delivered by choirs and bands – and it's just as moving.
