I really haven't written anything about music since the day I started this blog, so I thought I'd do something about it. One of the blogs I regularly visit - Vitamin Z - posted a list of some songs whose lyrics have impacted him. This is the first in what I hope to be a regular feature - perhaps once a week - including lyrics of songs that have impacted me.

The following lyrics are from a Steven Curtis Chapman song titled "I Am Found In You."
The sun sinks low, and here I go
Wrestling with questions that refuse an answer
This path of faith can be a place
So barren of what I understand
I can hear the voice of fear
Saying, “Let me show you another way”
So I cry out, “My Lord Jesus!
It’s in Your love for me I find all that I need”

So where else could I turn
And where else could I go
You have given me life
You have made me whole
You have rescued my soul
So where else could I go
For I am found in You

I may not see in front of me
But I can see for miles when I look over my shoulder
And Lord it’s clear, You’ve brought me here
So faithful every step of the way
What can I do, but follow You
For You are the Way, the Truth, the Life
And You’ve promised never to leave me
My Savior, my Friend, from beginning to end

Lord, without You this child would be so lost
But I’ve been found in You, now I am bound to You
By the love that You’ve shown, it will not let me go
You can listen to a clip of the song through Windows Media Player, Real Player, or iTunes.
