For me, most songs (particularly those with lyrics) go through a long process that sometimes doesn’t end until the very late stages of recording. This song was NOT one of those. It was composed and recorded live in my studio during a morning in early 2013.

Its lyric and melody are dead simple, but encapsulates a profound reality that’s taken me nearly sixty years to truly appreciate. Life if full of great “falls” and sometimes we land flat on our faces but other times we land flat on our backs looking up. It’s during those moments of great despair, pain and personal humiliation that we are offered a glimpse of God’s glory and steadfast love for us.

Wendy’s violin solo (which was added a year later) is exquisite. It musically captures that slow unraveling when all is considered lost but then turns at, “I am gazing at your glory,” with a renewed resolution and trust.


I have fallen,
from my mountain,
I have hit the earth,

I am gazing,
at your glory,
I lie on this ground,


from Broken, Gazing, released August 12, 2014
