This Place--Lyrics

By Richard Mekdeci

VERSE 1 This place like a clear blue autumn sky, Peaceful as a sleeping child. This place stirs my love for life, Brings me home to paradise.

I rest my troubles gently in Godís care. When I feel most grateful I just want to share.

VERSE 2 This place, always there, like an old friend Singing mother natureís song, A shoulder where I can rest my weary head, A place I feel that I belong.

When my faith is shaken and life bears down so hard, I know there's a haven that's never very far.

CHORUS This place, it always heals me somehow. This place, who would be richer than me right now? This place is such a part of me. The gift what else could it be? This place. I'm ever grateful for this place.

VERSE 3 This place, holds me in it's arms, Breathes on me the breath of God. This place, shelters me from harm, And whispers to me words of love.

When I'm in confusion and filled with fear and doubt, It all becomes illusion; oh, when I think about

CHORUS

BRIDGE Best of times, best of friends, the best of evĎrything. Could it be God is blessing me with beauty overwhelming?

VERSE 4 [Instrumental]

I rest my troubles so gently in Godís care. When I feel most grateful I just want to share.

CHORUS

OUTRO I'm ever grateful for this place.
