Shadows

ShadowsAll day today I’ve been thinking of the words of  a song I learned when I was a young mother.  It touched my heart then – and it has touched my heart again.  Maybe you need this reminder, too. 

A beautiful piano rendition of this song can be heard here.

You ask me about the mountains
Yes, I’ve climbed them
I’ve felt the sunshine on my shoulder
And the warm winds blow
And you ask me about the valleys
Yes, I’ve been there
Had my heart break in two
Felt the teardrops flow

Chorus:
But I’ve heard footsteps walking in the shadows
And a hand reaching out to tell me He was there
Yes, I’ve heard footsteps walking in the shadows
And a hand reaching out to tell me He was there

Talking about the good life
Friend, I’ve known it
Had my home ring with laughter
Heard my children in prayer
Talking about the bad things
Oh, I’ve been there
Had my world crumble down
And only God would care

Chorus:
Yes, I’ve heard footsteps walking in the shadows
And a hand reaching out to tell me He was there
Yes, I’ve heard footsteps walking in the shadows
And His hand reaching out to tell me He was there 

…for He, God, Himself has said,
I will not in any way fail you
nor give you up
nor leave you without support.
I will not, I will not,
I will not in any degree leave you helpless
nor forsake nor let you down
(relax My hold on you)!
Assuredly not!

Hebrews 13:5

  4. Not come across that song before.

    Winter trees and water and skies make for good pictures.

  5. I have never heard this song. The lyrics are just lovely. Football fever is high in WA today and the entire state is watching the super bowl. Even at church we had blue and green kool-ade, the grand-kids loved it.

  9. There's so much comfort in that scripture, isn't there? To know that our God will never leave us, that He's always with us. Oh, He's so faithful! Thank you for sharing this, Adrienne. I love that song, too. Hugs, Nancy
