01. Song For My Sons

Tell Me What You Know
by Sara Groves



 

This is a song for my sons for when they understand it
You know how life is full you know we couldn't plan it
your dad and I prayed for strength and understanding
for things we couldn't see or comprehend

This is a song for you, to carry in your pocket
take all our love with you in all the paths you walk in
I can't say your life will always go like it should
but I can say that God is always good

and when the cold wind blows like I know it will
and when you feel alone like I know you will
and when the cold wind blows like we know it will

Don't let your love grow
Don't let your love grow
Don't let your love grow cold

This is a song for my sons for when they understand it
You know how life is full you know we couldn't plan it
your dad and I prayed for strength and understanding
for things we couldn't see or comprehend

This is a song from my heart a small refrain to hold you
for times when we're apart and I cannot console you
Be honest with yourself and don't forget to pray
and read your bible everyday

and when the cold wind blows like I know it will
and when you feel alone like I know you will
and when the cold wind blows like I know it will

Don't let your love grow
Don't let your love grow
Don't let your love grow cold




Behind the Song:
"When my Grandmother was 19, her dad, who was a pastor, went to England to speak. While he was there, he had a massive heart attack and was in the hospital dying. He got a little index card and he wrote, “Nita, I didn’t mean for this to happen. I’m so sorry. Always love Jesus.” She never got to see her dad again—he died there in England. But she has this index card with his last words to her. I’m not a fatalist, but I wanted to write a song that had the weight of that card. The song is based on Matthew 24 where Jesus is talking to the disciples, and they’re asking him about the end times. In verses 12-13, Jesus says, “Because of the increase of evil, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm until the end will be saved.” Evil evokes in us a desire to close down our hearts. If I could say one thing to my boys, it would be, as the world gets darker, you are going to want to close your hearts. Your love is going to grow cold, and you will want to defend and protect yourself. Jesus asks us to pry open our hearts, and in the face of great darkness, to stand firm in our love for God and love for our neighbors." - Sara Groves
