|A look at the songs that have shaped|
my life and ended up on my devices.
Capitol Records released a single version of this song with more instrumentation and backing vocals. Although I don't have a record of it making the top 40, it hit #27 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. I still prefer the version used in the film, which is what is on my devices.
The lyrics are filled with spiritual imagery, which explains why the senior high school choir sang it at my old church.
But if you want imagery and spirituality, listen to this song while flying over the Chesapeake Bay at night. I did, in 2016, while flying into Richmond, Virginia on the way to another George Washington Ball in Williamsburg. I didn't program the song to play at that moment; the shuffle was in the right place at the right time.
I repeated playing it... several times.
