When You Are Near

Although I wrote this song for my wedding to Amy, it’s really more of a worship song to be used in a service.  After we used it at our wedding it was used in two more weddings immediately after, which is pretty cool.  It’s a song about letting go and becoming part of something bigger.


Staring into the fire
I’m being made brand new through your love
Somehow I knew this desire
Was leading me to your love

So I give up all of my madness
So I give up all I’ve held dear
All I have left is your forgiveness
And no moment’s wasted when you are near

I never believed you couldn’t love me
But still I withdrew from your heart
I know that you were there right beside me
You opened my eyes and I woke from the dark

When You Are Near
