Lyrics 1.1

"Downhere" is a Canadian Christian band that has a good sound and this is a song by them that speaks about peace in God's plan.  It's a simple reminder of our place in the Creator's story.

Band: Downhere
Song: Here I Am

Sometimes your calling, comes in dream
Sometimes in comes in the Spirit's breeze,
You reach for the deepest part of me,
And call out for the things of eternity.

But I'm a man, of dust and stains,
You move in me, so I can say,

CHORUS:
Here I am, Lord send me,
All of my life, I make an offering,
Here I am, Lord send me,
Somehow my story, Is part of your plan,
Here I am

When setbacks and failures, and upset plans,
Test my faith and leave me with empty hands,
Are you not the closest when it's hardest to stand?
I know that you will finish what you began.

These broken parts you redeem,
Become the song, that I can sing
(chorus)

Overwhelmed by the thought of my weakness,
And the fear that I'll fail you in the end,
In this mess, I'm just one of the pieces,
I can't put this together but you can.
Grant

G-
You can probably find this band at a used CD store or on ITunes.  They're a refreshing christian band the way that the book "I am not, but I know I AM" is a refreshing book to read.  

Their website is www.downhere.com.  The title of their most recent CD is "Ending is Beginning."  The title means what it says, in that when we end to ourselves we can begin to establish an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ.  Words from the above song that help push that theme forward are ..."When setbacks and failures, and upset plans, Test my faith and leave me with empty hands, Are you not the closest when it's hardest to stand?" or "In this mess, I'm just one of the pieces, I can't put this together but you can."  

It's not easy to give up our own goals and objectives, but as we have figured out by now that God's goals and objectives have eternal ramifications.  

Enjoy the album.
