Hello Everyone!

This week’s hymn is actually one of my all-time favorites! It’s calm and peaceful, and it is a reminder to always trust the Lord, even if you don’t really understand how He works in your daily life.

Sometimes what happens in the day may be scary and confusing, but it’s always part of his plan. For if we never experienced pain, hurt and anguish, how will we ever feel love, goodness and compassion? Whatever trials he sets for us, it is always for the better of our soul, even if it seems as if we’ve completely broken down.

So, I decided to try arranging this hymn acapella style. I was recently inspired to do this by a children’s film I was watching for Christmas (*ahem* Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses *ahem*) and I decided to give it a try. Of course it’s a bit messy, since this is my first time, but perhaps I might just decide to give it another go, for another time.


So without further ado, here is “I Watch The Sunrise”.

I Watch The Sunrise



Lyrics by David Evans

I watch the sunrise,

Lighting the sky,

Casting its shadows near,

And on this morning,

Bright though it be,

I feel those shadows near me.

Chorus

But You are always,

Close to me,

Following all my ways,

May I be always,

Close to You,

Following all Your ways Lord.

V

I watch the sunlight,

Shine through the clouds,

Warming the Earth below,

And at the midday,

Life seems to say,

I feel Your brightness near me.

Chorus

For You are always,

Close to me,

Following all my ways,

May I be always,

Close to You,

Following all Your ways Lord.

V

I watch the sunset,

Fading away,

Lighting the clouds with sleep,

And as the evening,

Closes its eyes,

I feel your presence near me.

Chorus

For You are always,

Close to me,

Following all my ways,

May I be always,

Close to You,

Following all Your ways Lord.

V

I watch the moonlight,

Guarding the night,

Waiting ‘til morning comes,

The air is silent,

Earth is at rest,

Only Your peace is near me.

Chorus

Yes You are always,

Close to me,

Following all my ways,

May I be always,

Close to You,

Following all Your ways Lord.
