Country music star Keith Urban's “God Whispered Your Name” feels very personal to his relationship with wife Nicole Kidman even though he didn't write it...

Country music superstar Keith Urban recently released his new single, “God Whispered Your Name”! The song was written by James Slater, Shy Carter, Micah Carter, and Chris August. Urban confessed that he had to record the song the moment he heard it, especially since it hit so close to home.

“‘God Whispered Your Name’ really spoke to me the very first time I heard it. The opening line – I was so cold and lost/and nothing seemed to ring true – God, I know that place so well, and the rest of the song unfolded, and I just followed it every step of the way,” the star shares in a statement. “At the end of the day if I’m gonna record a song that I didn’t write, like this one, then it’s gonna be a song that speaks to me really strongly. And ‘God Whispered Your Name’ absolutely spoke to me and tells my journey in such a profound way going through a season in life of being very lost and lonely and confused and not knowing how to get out of that, and then the chorus hits — ‘God Whispered Your Name’ and everything starts to open up and become clear. And that second verse when it said, ‘I can feel the sunshine for the first time in a while, again, was just, it just went right to the core of me. And (it was) the most extraordinary song, and I just knew right then and there I had to get into the studio and record it.”

“God Whispered Your Name” Lyrics

I was so cold and lost
And nothing seemed to ring true
I couldn’t bear the cross
For everything I’d been through
And each day, I knew I needed change
But there was no way, no way

And then God whispered your name
And that’s when everything changed
And love came out of the rain
And talk about being saved

Suddenly I wanna live
More than I ever did
I’m never gonna be the same
When God whispered your name

I can see the sunshine
For the first time in a while
Girl, it’s like I’ve been baptized
By the warmth of your smile, mmm
Well, call it fate or faith or call it crazy either way
It’s amazin’, amazin’ grace

When God whispered your name
That’s when everything changed
Love came out of the rain
Talk about being saved

Well, suddenly I wanna live
More than I ever did
I’m never gonna be the same
When God whispered your name

It’s just what I needed to hear, baby
It couldn’t have been more loud and clear

When God whispered your name
That’s when everything changed
Love came out of the rain (Out of the rain)
And talk about being saved

Oh, suddenly I wanna live
More than I ever did
I’m never gonna be the same
When God whispered your name, oh yeah

(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah)
Ooh, Hallelujah, baby
Oh yeah, mmm (Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah)
Ooh yeah
I can see the sunlight shinin’ through your pretty eyes, baby
Woo! Mmm (Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
I like a man who leaves, time feels like hell
(Hallelujah)
Got my hands up high, I got my hands up to the sky
(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
Ooh, I’m sayin’ thank you
(Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah)
