Farther Along: Thanksgiving 2011
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
I was pondering that question this morning on my way across the Bosporus (on this not-so-celebratory Thanksgiving for us) when I heard Josh Garrels’ “Farther Along” song for the first time & it nearly brought me to my knees.
Farther Along, day by day, year by year, each step closer to our final home. That future hope…it is indeed the first of many reasons I’m thankful today.
And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of god is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon
Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by
You can get the song or the whole Love & War and the Sea in Between Album on his site here:
