  • Patrick from La Paz, BoliviaThis song is actually about when you first accept Jesus Christ as your savior, awakening in the dark times.
  • Steve from Winnipeg, MbBest one on the album for sure.
  • Julie from Taylor, TxThis song means so much more than you probably think it does. Read the actually lyrics and find out the meaning. One of the most beautiful songs ever.
  • Simon from Chattanooga , TnListen closely to the introduction; doesn't it sound as though John is singing from underwater?
  • Kiran from Shelton, CtAmazing song. my youth group introduced me to it when me and my girlfriend broke up. The video has an amazing feel like the song.
