New (Old) Song

Let’s go back to 1997 for this one…Olivia and I weren’t even engaged yet…but I missed her and I hd some darkness that needed light. “Day Over Night” was born…

Day Over Night
Written by Ben Ward

VERSE 1
I’m here without sight
Heal me Lord
I’m here without direction
Cut me a path towards
A place of clarity
Somewhere I can see

CHORUS
Father, Comforter, Savior, Friend
Hold me close till this pain has an end
In you I find complete delight
You conquer my darkness like day over night

VERSE 2
You’re here with my questions
And all of my heartaches
You’re here with my confusion
When I can’t get it straight
You know my uncertainty
You’re everything I need

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You say, “Come to Me with or without
Come to me with your heart hanging out”
You say, “Come and drink when you’re thirsty and dry
Come to me even if you ask why”

VERSE 3
I’m here Lord
It’s just me again
I’m here Lord
I’m in need of a friend
I’m here Lord
No one but You
Can make me tender
Overflowing and new

CHORUS

  1. The production quality of this version is soooo much better than the one we put together almost 20 years ago!

    Congrats. It’s still a great song.

     
    • Haha…we were just getting started! Remember the jazz band was practicing in the next room while we were mixing!! Thanks Chris!
