More Musical Good News with For King and Country…

I love songs that convey such a strong spiritual message without even saying the word God or Jesus. I imagine there are critics who will condemn the song for the same reason. Let them have their opinions. In our increasingly secular world, it helps to have a song with such powerful lyrics and music that can appeal to the faithful and those still searching.

I walked through the house this morning, singing the song over and over. That happens quite a bit when I listen to a catchy tune. Here are the lyrics, taken from K-LOVE’s website followed by a LIVE performance.  I regret missing them on their past visits to Kansas City.

This is where it begins

This is where all the worry ends

This is where I say

I don’t need to have control

This is where I admit

I don’t know how to handle it

Life in all of its chaos

You are my only hope

And all that I have offer

Is the white flag of surrender


So take me to the middle of Your heart

Lead me to wherever Your love starts

To a new day dawning

To the place You are

And if You wanna take me over the edge

I’ll let You ‘cause You love is where I’ll land

Wanna be right where You are

In middle of Your heart

This what I believe

That if I give You my everything

I will become who I was really born to be

I’ll stand up to say it

Yeah, Your love is something I can put my faith in


I carried what I carried

But now I can let it go

Yeah I carried what I carried

But now I can let it go

Now I can let it go
