11. The Sun Is Shining

Wherever You Are
by Third Day



 

Yesterday I found
That everything I knew was wrong
It was upside down
The life I thought I had was gone

But You came and whispered love to me
And You gave me strength to carry on

Oh, the sun is shining
There is hope for me again
A new day’s dawning
The sun is shining

Yesterday I lost
Everything I had and loved
Then I cried out for You, Lord
And You came and picked me up

And the sorrow lasted through the night
But the joy came with the morn

I will lift my voice
No, I won’t be silent
For You heard my cry
And You turned my mourning into dancing
And so forever I’ll sing

Behind the Song:
'In a time of loss, a friend shared Psalm 30:5 with me, which says that sorrow lasts through the night but joy comes in the morning. We were working at a YMCA camp in '94 when one of my best friends unexpectedly died. We all know that death is inevitable; however it is sobering when it comes unexpected at an early age. Even though I realized that my friend was a believer and that he was in a better place, of course there was still much sorrow. Hearing the word of that verse, it brought peace to know that through our trials God will make us stronger. We must not forget the ultimate hope that He offers us. This is a song that we almost didn't record because musically it was so different than where the album was headed. Thankfully, Blaine Barcus, our A & R rep at the label, kept reminding us that we should try to work on it. So, once we were done working on the initial batch of songs, we all agreed that we should finish it, and we are all quite happy that we did!' - Mac Powell (Third Day)
