(Nori Kelley)

I wake up in the morning to the sound of Your voice
You call to me and remind me You're still there
You tell me to commit my thoughts and dreams to You
And that You'll fulfill my longings through the day

And my only desire is to live
And to share all I can give
Through the love that You've implanted in my heart
You are love - You're my life
You're my hope of paradise
You're my never ending stream that will never part

When You take my hand and walk me through the times when I can't see
When You guide me in the decisions I should make
I realize You're care for me is much more than I deserve
And You're grace has overcome all my mistakes...

I am free - I am clean
Ever since You came to me
I've been filled with the fulness of You

This was written in 1977, a somewhat prolific year for me as a songwriter. I wasn't very happy with the outcome of the recorded version (as with a large portion of Spring Rain), so I decided to do it again in 1991 when I recorded The Wind project.

Musically, this is a bit of Renaissance and maybe some classical guitar influence, which I was playing a good bit of in those days.
