about

This song was inspired by the phrase “Forever home.” This was a theme in a memorial service to celebrate the life of a friend from my church who I also had the privilege of caring for as a Palliative care physician. I loved the phrase and so the song deals with some of the transience of our physical human lives in the light of the unchangingness and transcendence of God. The more I see of life and death, the more I realize that if our hope is placed solely in the natural and our trust is solely in our humanity we are not necessarily holding on to something that will sustain us through the storms of life when they come.

lyrics

Forever Home

Nothing here lasts forever but You never end
All this is temporary just a case of when
Season will come and go, appearances will change.
Rivers will rise and fall, but we cannot stop the rain
When it's falling

But You will forever reign, forever live
Forever You are God
You will forever be, forever more
Your faithfulness is sure
Our forever home
Our forever home

Friendship will help the journey, Yours we know will last
History tells us we can learn things from the past
Happiness comes and goes, depends on how we feel
So when the storms arrive are we holding something real
When we're falling.
