05. Right Where You Are

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

I understand what I’ve been told / You’re what I’ve learned but barely known / Like a man who’s mastered every tongue / But never left his home / My hungry heart is discontent / With petty thought and argument / So they can keep their sermonettes / I want the Christ not just His silhouette // Take me above the Sun, Moon and stars / There’s so much more I could see if you would just carry me / Up to the place where you are / Take me, my Love / Escape with my heart / And chasing You I will run right past the radiant Sun / Until I find myself right where You are, right where You are // I want to board the northbound train / And go on up to Heaven’s gate / You said to seek and I will find / Well here I come no turning round this time / I want to taste the height and depth / And live inside Your width and breadth / And comprehend with all the saints this wild love that’s never left /// I’m not an orphan I’m a runaway / You’ve always been there for me / So if you’re willing to receive a stray / I will gladly run into your arms / It’s exactly where I always want to be

Behind the Song:
"Tozer had a big impact on me during the making of Nightlights. His book “The Pursuit of God” opened my eyes to see how content I have become with simply knowing a series of facts about God and calling that a “relationship.” There is so much more of God to be accessed by His people, if we would only grow weary of the surface knowledge of Him and press into a place of real communion. That is what the song “Right Where You Are” is about." - Jimmy Needham
