somethings you pray in your prayers
sing in your songs
dreams that lovers share
resting in the promise
Of a love
it leads them on
a steeper path
the Lord for everything
you love, you are gonna to find peace
you love, you'll have a new song to sing
you love, you are gonna break free
world and your heart will rise above
a rest you find in work
get out of sleep
a healing that may hurt
a war that must be waged for peace
come ready made
you wanna be free
become a slave
you love it all works out for the best
will always be good
times get hard
you love you get to thank the Lord
And it goes
on and on and on and on.and on and on...
on and on and on and on and on...
on and on and on and on and on......

my version of the Rich Mullins song "When You Love" that he recorded on
his second album. Rich and I had talked about rewriting and reworking the
song and putting it on my first record. We never got around to doing that.
But, about six months after the wreck, I went ahead and did it. I loved
the lyric and the overall sentiment of the song and I added a Chorus and
a bridge. I think the song is saying: "our loving, as God created us to
love, is the ultimate. Loving seems like such a simple act, yet when we
love, miracles happen.
