honey in the rock: inside the lyrics and their meaning

honey in the rock is a verse from Holy Scripture, Psalm 81, verse 16:

“He should have fed them also with the best of wheat and with honey from the rock if I had satisfied you.”

The Bible verse means that God provides us with everything we need, even from sources and situations where we least expect it.. Honey usually cannot be found in rocks, but God’s will makes it possible if there are only rocks around us.

From this point of view, the lyrics of the song have a grateful meaning: wherever we are, we don’t have to worry because God is always at our side and gives us what we really need.

There’s honey in the rock, water in the stone
Manna on the ground no matter where I go
I don’t need to worry now that I know
All that I need
There is honey in the rock

Being faithful means leaning on God in difficult times. It is a reassuring consequence of being children of God: we trust him and know that he guides and protects us in all situations. It gives us the feelings of security we need to live a life in harmony with his words.

What is interesting is that Brooke Ligertwood chose this verse about honey, among many others. Honey is sweet par excellence, which should generally represent something that is not strictly necessary. But God’s love does not want us to survive with only the essentials: He can also give us sweetness in the wild contexts where our spirit pushes us. This interpretation is evident from the following lines of the song:

Meekness at the mercy seat
Now that I’ve tasted, it’s not hard to see
Only you can satisfy

Freedom where the Spirit is
bounty in the desert
You will always be satisfied

Therefore, this is the true meaning of the lyrics inside honey in the rock: we have full confidence in God’s plan for us, and we know that he always protects us, whatever happens, wherever we go. And even when we feel lost and see only rocks around us, we know that he will give us his sweet love. Even if you have to put honey in the rock.
