I was listening to some Rich Mullins songs this morning while doing some work around the house.
One of my new favorites is “If I Stand.” The chorus says this:
So if I stand let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can’t, let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home
I like especially like the last two lines.
Somedays…I don’t miss home. I’m LONGING for it, because I know THIS is not it.
