A Long Ago and Faraway Place

A Long Ago And Faraway Place

Collaborative song with CU Productions, Scott Guthre, Diana Rasmussen

I remember a time, when I felt you near,
An awe struck child with stars in my eyes
Anticipating, expecting grace.
A long ago, far away place.

How did I get here, where did I miss my turn?
I’m tired of walking alone.
I miss your smile, the love in your eyes,
My long ago, far away place.

I’ve come to my senses, leavin’ the past behind.
Your ways are higher, Your plans are good.
I’m Coming back, I want to go home.

When troubles surround me,
When trials come my way,
I set my mind on things above,
and a Long ago far away place.

I lay down my worldly wisdom,
Become a child again.
Rest in your presence Lord,
My Long ago far away place.

I follow in your footprints Lord,
ask you “Daddy where we going to?
You take my hand, You say to me,
“To a long ago far away place”



“But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31 NKJV)

 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV)


Dear Lord,

I ask you to break the yokes of heavy burdens today.  Let us rest in Your presence.  Let us fly like the eagle above the world it’s problems.  We choose to put our trust in You today.   Thank you Jesus!
