So Far To Find you....Adoption song....

















 from Casting Crowns

You were broken, abandoned
And crying all alone
We were waiting and praying
And longing to bring you home
And then we saw your face
In a moment you were wrapped up in our hearts
We took a step of faith
And now here we are

Will you let me hold you in my arms tonight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you
Will you take my love and give up the fight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you

From a world away, I journeyed
Just to hold your hand
You will never be alone again
I've come so far to find you
So far to find you

You were fighting and fearful
You were hiding your heart away
But I was trying so hard to show you
'Cause there were no words that I could say
If you could see my heart
You would know that all I want to do
Is care for you

Will you let me hold you in my arms tonight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you
Will you take my love and give up the fight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you

Here in your eyes I see
Reflections of myself
How I'm the child that's really running
But I can hear a voice that's whispering my name
Saying come to me, don't run from me
I'm all you need and I am calling

Will you let me hold you in my arms tonight?
I have come so far
Will you take my love and give up the fight?
I have come so far

Will you let me hold you in my arms tonight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you
Will you take my love and give up the fight?
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you

From Heaven's throne
Down to a rugged cross I came
It was My love for you that brought Me all the way
So far to find you
So far to find you

You were broken, abandoned
And crying all alone

Love Casting Crowns and I love this song! Never thought of it as an adoption song before, but it works so well for that.

Blessing to you and your family. Glad the wedding went well!

Hi Jackie, Have missed you at church. hope you are all better soon. This song was written about adoption and international adoption in particular. It was written with Stephen Curtis Chapman.. and I think casting crown guys have adopted too...

Morning Dawn - know the song and love it as well! It's the "classic" answer that so many of us who have adopted have come to give...."Dad - where were you all the time before you adopted me?" "Sweetheart - I didn't know where you were - but as soon as I found you - I came as fast as I could....I'm just sorry it took so long to get there."

It's an "unsatisfactory" answer - but it IS true!

hugs - aus and co.
