Lyrics:

1. I was lost in the darkness as the sunset turned to black.
A great wind took me off my feet and I could not get back.
I was carried and forgotten, and I cried out, Have I died?
The darkness turned to singing and instead I opened wide.

Chorus: All I know is someone took my hand.
All I know is I could finally stand.
It could have been golden wings. It could have been an angel band.
All I know is  someone took my hand.

2. I was tossed in a shipwreck. I was cast over the rail.
I kept swimming through dark water, and it looked like I would fail.
When I thought--I can’t make it -- all around me there was grace.
And the sands rose up to meet my feet and so I found my place.     

CHORUS

3. I was down in a dungeon in a place that time forgot.
When I faced each shadow, the light it did not stop. 
I am back from the ghost town. I am back from the grave.
I was shaken and forsaken. Now I guess you’d call me saved.

CHORUS

Background of the Song:

This song describes a time that I did prayers day by day, hour by hour, and felt palpable support as real as gravity.
