Song of the month

This song is brought to us by Jars of Clay– one of my all-time favorite bands. I really enjoy their music and this is one of those songs that has just stuck with me. The first time I heard it was when they performed on the Rock and Worship Roadshow earlier this year. It is just an incredible song and instead of saying much more about it, I’ll just let you experience it.


To all who are looking down

Holding onto hearts still wounding

For those who’ve yet to find it

The places near where love is moving


Cast off the robes you’re wearing

Set aside the names that you’ve been given

May this place of rest in the fold of your journey

Bind you to hope, you will never walk alone


In the shelter of each other, we will live, we will live

In the shelter of each other, we will live, we will live

Your arms are all around us


If our hearts have turned to stone

There is hope, we know the rocks will cry out

And the tears aren’t ours alone

Let them fall into the hands that hold us


Come away from where you’re hiding

Set aside the lies that you’ve been living

May this place of rest in the fold of your journey

Bind you to hope that we will never walk alone


If there is any peace, if there is any hope

We must all believe, our lives are not our own

We all belong

God has given us each other

And we will never walk alone
