Worship Wednesdays - How The Light Gets In

On last fall's East Coast Tour, we shot 3 performances for NTV's Heart Matters
This week, we posted the title song from our ECMA nominated album - How The Light Gets In:



I've written before about the journey of our songs
and How The Light Gets In is one song that's had a great journey.

It was a special homecoming to perform this song for a Newfoundland television show. Gerald actually started the song on a previous East Coast Tour. One night, while the ink was still wet on the page, we shared this new song, announcing it was a 'world debut.' People responded positively, so we continued to share it each night. At first, it was a solo song for Gerald with my harmonies on the chorus. It became one of my favourite parts of the show. As the tour went deeper into the fall and the weather got colder, singing the song felt warm, 
like a summer's day.

Some songs are meant to be solos, but others begin to reveal themselves as duets. One day, I went to Gerald and said, "I really feel like this song is meant to be a conversation, a shared message of two voices." I suggested we could alternate the couplets in the verses, and then come together in the chorus. He smiled and said, "I was actually thinking the same thing." 

As we went through the process of choosing songs for our new CD, How The Light Gets In started to work its way to the top of the list. It become the title song of the album, inspired our CD cover, and has become a staple in our repertoire. 

We hope this song will inspire you, and add a little 'summer' to a chilly winter day!


How The Light Gets In 
Written by Gerald Flemming (c) 2014

All that we are given
Is yet to be revealed
As we seek out the stillness 
Of a silent promise sealed

And in this gentle season 
Where storms are held at bay 
The smallest here among us 
Are lifted by His grace

We open up our eyes to the brilliance in the skies 
That’s how the light gets in
There’s a warmth on our face from the beauty and the grace 
That’s how the light gets in
How the light get in

As the morning gently holds us 
In the quiet of His hand 
The restlessness is calmed by 
The promise of His plan

And in that peace we're given 
A joy that knows no bounds 
Every sin’s forgiven
In the splendor of the crown

We open up our eyes to the brilliance in the skies 
That’s how the light gets in
There’s a warmth on our face from the beauty and the grace 
That’s how the light gets in
How the light gets in

All that we are given 
Is yet to be revealed
