A reminder in song form

On Sunday night, I headed out to a Music Unsigned Christmas show here in town with a few friends. Truth be told, I was kind of tired and sort of wanted to just go home and go to bed. But I’d given my word and paid $10 to go, so off I went.

We were to listen to Jeffrey James, one of my most recent local favorites, but during the show, Andrew Ripp took the stage, and when he opened his mouth and sang “Joy to the World” in a way that reflected Jesus truly was the source of his joy, I became an instant fan. That night, I downloaded Andrew’s Christmas album and his last full length album, She Remains the Same. On that album, I found the song “You Will Find Me,” which appears to be written just for me at this moment. Thank goodness God is a pursuing kind of God.

You Will Find Me (lyrics) by Andrew Ripp, Ben Rector, and Steve Moakler

When your souls weary
When you find doubt
When you can’t hear me
Lay your troubles down

In your dark moments
When your hearts weak
Bring yourself broken
You will find me

Who wrote the rain
Who wrote the sun in
Who called your name
Where are you running
I’m gonna be there near or far
I’m gonna meet you where you are
Who wrote your name
Who wrote the sun in

When you come thirsty
When the wells dry
When your souls dirty
I am by your side

When your faiths broken
When you can’t see
With my arms open
You will find me

Who wrote the rain
Who wrote the sun in
Who called your name
Where are you running
I’m gonna be there near or far
I’m gonna meet you where you are
Who wrote your name
Who wrote the sun in

You carried all my shame
When you called my name
I am not the same

Who wrote the rain
Who wrote the sun in
You called my name
I’m tired of running
I’m gonna be there near or far
I’m gonna meet you where you are
Who wrote your name
Who wrote the sun in
