Description #2: I don’t remember where I was when this tune and the words started coming to me, but it was definitely when I was in my teens. It was exciting to give a copy of this album to one of the couples I had in mind when I wrote this song. It meant something to them, and it thrilled my heart.
It sure was fun when we were kids the future wasn’t ours to give
I knew of you, you knew of me, how could we know where you would be
I so admired when you’d come from, your family was a faithful
Each member lived for him, it’s true, and now their hearts and prayers send you
But do I ever write you?
Do you hear me say, that I’m thankful to you, for loving him that way?
For telling them God loves them and that he’s always there
and that eternal life takes only just prayer
And deep inside we hold a dream of one day in heaven meeting those we’ve never seen
to hear their tales and share ours as well
One day as you kneel in prayer a man in robes will join you there
Without a word you’ll know it’s true— that man is there because God sent you!
