about

This is a song about faith and the things that faith may allow us to see. Sometimes that which is beautiful is revealed in situations and places where there is hardship. On this recording, the entire drum part (which includes drums, several cymbals, and a cowbell) is something I practiced for a while and then recorded in a single take with no overdubs.

lyrics

Shattered stones of rubble beneath her feet
Tiny child is dancing in the street
Fallen city ruins lay all around
One small drop of life in a dusty town
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled

Precious drop of life is dancing around
In a broken land it can be found
Feel the breath of God upon your face
See how this is now a holy place
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled

Who will see this dancing, this little girl?
Who will take the time to watch her twirl?
One small drop of life lights up the sky
Who will catch the splendor dancing by?
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled
