This song came after a few days of meditating on the book of James, and in particular,

Jas 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.


We had been talking about skills and talents, and had been reading aloud The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle, who explains how some people become "the best" at their own particular field, whether music, a sport, a science, or whatever.

The song is gratitude for that created ability to observe, learn and create like my Creator.



G, D7, C

G          C       G     D7    C              D7
There is a face I always see, even when I am dreaming

G          C      G       D7   C                       D7
Lost in a crowd, or all alone, yours is the face I am seeing.


G          C        G      D7    C              D7
There is a voice I always hear, even when I am singing

G          C       G         D7    C                      D7
Deep in my heart, filling my mind. You are the truth I am hearing.


G              C        G       D7    C                            D7
Thank you, oh, Giver! Giver of Life. Thank you! I love you, I need you.

G        C        G        D7    C                        D7
You are words and music I sing. You are the song and the reason!

C                      D7
You have no shadow of turning

G                     D7         G
Here in this place, before your face

Every good gift comes from above

Father of Lights! You are worthy!
