Written by Hastings along with Lake, Cody Carnes, and Chris Davenport, the studio version of “Abandoned” was released on January 12 to high acclaim, marking it Hastings’ highest debut single to date with more than half a million streams since its release.

“This is a surrender song,” Hastings reveals about its theme. “It’s coming from the perspective of everything God has done for us and the ways in which He surrendered and modeled that for us. How would we not do the same?”

He adds, “At first listen, this song may come across like it’s about our abandon and sure, it is, but to me, it’s more about His. He who not only chose the cross but had ‘angels at His fingertips’ and chose to remain. Every second, deciding again not to give up but to persevere. To repeatedly pursue surrender, even at the hour of greatest agony. I can’t think of a more inspiring sentiment than this, and I guess that brings me back to why it may sound like a song about our abandon; Maybe that’s the only way to respond to His.”

This live recording of “Abandoned” was captured last fall while Hastings and Lake were touring together. He says, “I got to write this with some of my favorite people, and I’m honestly overwhelmed by all the excitement around it. I pray (like it has for me) it helps you articulate words that you didn’t know you had trapped inside, and ultimately inspires worship.”

“Completely, deeply, sold out sincerely, abandoned
I’m completely, freely, hands to the ceiling enamored
My one life endeavor
To match your surrender
To mirror not my will but yours
I’m completely, deeply, don’t care who sees me abandoned
Oh I surrender”
