Strangely Dim

Album: Hundred More Years Deluxe Edition (2013)
  • I've had all these plans piled up sky high
    A thousand dreams on hold
    And I don't know why,
    I got a front row seat
    To the longest wait
    And I just can't see
    Past the things I pray
    Today

    But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
    Then every doubt I feel
    Deep in my heart
    Grows strangely dim
    All my worries fade
    And fall to the ground
    'Cause when I seek Your face
    And don't look around
    Any place I'm in
    Grows strangely dim

    Sometimes where I stand
    On this narrow road
    Is in a raging storm
    Or a valley low
    But oh

    When I fix my eyes on all that You are
    Then every doubt I feel
    Deep in my heart
    Grows strangely dim
    All my worries fade
    And fall to the ground
    'Cause when I seek Your face
    And don't look around
    Any place I'm in
    Grows strangely dim

    I don't know I don't know
    What tomorrow may hold
    But I know, but I know
    That You're holding it all
    So no matter what may come

    I'm gonna fix my eyes on all that You are
    'Til every doubt I feel
    Deep in my heart
    Grows strangely dim
    Let all my worries fade
    And fall to the ground
    I'm gonna seek Your face
    And not look around
    Til place I'm in
    Grows strangely dim Writer/s: FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI, MIA FIELDES, SETH MOSLEY
