The Blessing
by John Waller


This earth is crammed with Heaven
And every common bush
Is blazing with the fire of God

But only he who sees
Removes unworthy shoes
To realize holy ground

And Iím standing on the Rock of Ages
Iím basking in miracles
I stand on sacred pages
And this changes everything
Everything I am

This changes everything I am

I tremble when I wonder
How many times You call my name
But only he who hears will turn to You

And Iím driven by a vision
Of countless men who long for God
But only he who dies will live in You

Singing Rock of Ages cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand

It changes everything I am
On this Rock where I stand
On this Rock I stand

Behind the Song:
"The famous poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote, ďEarthís crammed with heaven; And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit around it and pluck blackberries.Ē My prayer is that God would open our eyes to see and ears to hear so that we will realize that Heaven is co-existing with us right here and now. This song was written while we were in the studio tracking the album. The producer, Mark Miller, liked it so much he said, ďLetís cut it.Ē Mark also sings backup on this song and he sounds pretty good singing background for a country singer who canít hear a lick of harmony!" - John Waller
