JULY SINGLE: OVER & OVER & OVER

Apprehend, Apprehension. Mandy Rogers Horton. 2016

Every now and then, admittedly rare, I get to write a song that’s born from nothing more, nothing less, than joy and wonder.

Madeleine L’Engle once said that as we grow older, we keep all the ages we’ve ever been, and I believe it. When I’m out in nature, especially in the baby greens of spring, I’m all the ages of childhood, and I barely know what to do with myself in the face of so much beauty.

And in other months and other settings, I find I’m just as prone to wonder and get crazy delighted with people and created things and displays of kindness and joy.

On the heels of such a trying season of my own life, it was such sweetness to sit down and let the piano lead the way into expressing my love and gratitude for the Maker’s gifts.

It is both the gifts and the gratitude for the gifts…recognizing the evidence of love…that keep me breathing in dark seasons.

Love,

christa

over & over & over

 

I’ve got a crush on the whole world

Cause it’s full of the soul of its maker

I fall in love with the whole world

Over and over and over

 

I’ve got a crush on the piney woods

And the fields growing wild with clover

I fall in love with the ocean 

Over and over and over

 

Bah da da da…

 

I’ve got a crush on the legs that dance

And the elegance of the composer

I fall in love with the potter’s hands

Over and over and over

 

I’ve got a crush on our little ones

With their hearts wide open in wonder

I fall in love with the joyful young

Over and over and over

 

Bah da da da (x2)

 

I’ve got a crush on the aged

Who carried us high on their shoulders

They know moments are meant to be savored

Over and over and over
