about

Nearing the completion of my first call to service with Youth Encounter, our good friend, Sunitha Mortha, spoke these words during a debriefing session: "In life, nothing ever happens in a hurry". They were simple, but stark. As i reflected upon the challenges of that previous year, and looked forward to the unknown land, those words remained an encouragement to me and a witness to God's faithfulness. That week, Within the night-lit chapel of Normandale Lutheran Church, this song was born.

lyrics

Silent smiling tears tell the story
Of twenty-six years You've written on my heart
This cover is worn ... bindings breaking
So sweeter the words that every day brings
Your Spirit sings

And You have shown the wonders of Your love
And here we're home in these hands that hold us now
Hold us now, hold us home

You are mine every moment
You invade my mind and set me free to be
She says, "In life, nothing ever happens in a hurry"
So i take my time ... believe those words she speaks
Embrace reality

And You have shown the wonders of Your love
And here we're home in these hands that hold us now
Hold us now, hold us now
More gentle than the breezes breath
Deeper than the heavens depth
And the thoughts we know
Warmer than that one sunset
When we were happy and we left
This world behind
And now it's fading fast and far
So set your eyes upon the stars
That guide us home, guide us home
