lyrics

The aching has begun
I cannot lie here waiting any longer
I rise to meet the sun
My tender footing slowly growing stronger
For now the time has come

And when I run, I feel Your pleasure
Your wings fixed upon my back
When I run I know why You have made me
My foolish heart can come alive at last

The road ahead is clear
And guarded by an awful host of angels
So drive away my fears
And break these rusted chains around my ankles
Your promise fills my ears

And when I run, I feel Your pleasure
Your wings fixed upon my back
When I run I know why You have made me
My foolish heart can come alive at last

My heart is racing as I go chasing
The sweet echo of Your voice
Into the valley where Your fingers touched the earth
Your open arms, they bid me welcome
It is useless to resist Your beckon call
And the love which loved me first
I am lifted by the love which loved me first

And when I run, I feel Your pleasure
Your wings fixed upon my back
When I run I know why You have made me
My foolish heart can come alive at last
When I run I know why You have made me
My foolish heart can come alive at last

He nearly doubled his following in 2012 with his first full-length album, THIS PILGRIM WAY, a record that reached across time and space to examine the survival of the human heart. ... more
