Where No One Stands Alone…

Since the movie trailer, I haven’t been able to get this one out of my head. The Peasall sisters have a haunting, paradoxically lovely and lonely harmony.

Once I stood in the night with my head bowed low
In the darkness as black as the sea
And my heart was afraid and I cried,
Oh Lord, don’t hide your face from me.

Hold my hand all the way, every hour, every day
From here to the great unknown
Take my hand, let me stand
Where no one stands alone.

Like a king, I may live in a palace so tall
With great riches to call my own
But I don’t know a thing in this whole wide world
That’s worse than being alone.

Hold my hand all the way, every hour, every day
From here to the great unknown
Take my hand, let me stand
Where no one stands alone…

As powerful as any psalm.

    Thanks, Anchoress. I’m having one of those worst-days with stress, dying computer, work mountains, a massive headcold, fighting a migraine, and a trip to Hawaii tomorrow for my senior citizen mom that now no longer looks fun behind the walls of stress, pain, details and poor-me. That song hit me on the bullseye of my heart. Made the tears flow and the stress dam break. thanks.

    Sniff!!!

    I’m out of touch… who are these Peasall sisters? Where’d they come from? I listened to this song and it is just lovely and beautiful. Just like a Psalm, as you said.

    The Allison Krause and the Cox Family do the song on their cd, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”. Another good version.

    This is beautiful.

    I have a good friend who is dying and is not a Christian. I really want to send this to her but I’m not sure I should …

  • jane

    I did send it, and I hope she finds it comforting.
