It's an incredible composition. Maybe in my top 10 all-time.
Probably in my top 10, too, and I agree, Dcazz, it's very spiritual (at least, it seems so to me). And the vocals are just staggering. Oh, to be gifted like that!
I was very touched last night to see that my teenage daughter, who along with my other two children has been struggling since her father walked out last year, posted a few lines from this on Facebook. I play it in the car, and she's never commented on it. Yesterday in the car when I was playing it I mentioned to all 3 kids how the song, to me, reminds me of that "Footprints in the Sand" quote. It encouraged me that she has been turning to her faith to get her through this.
