There You Are

(Rich Mullins, Beaker & Mitch McVicker)
from the soundtrack album Canticle of the Plains


I stood on that Cherokee Plain,
And the Cimeron broke free and jumped its banks
All in a rush of life.
The thunderhead roared out its song,
And it gave what was too much for it to hold.
And so must I.

And You light the sun to lead me.
Send the wind to be my guide.
Just the wonder of this prairie,
So lonely and so alive.
And the song the moon is singin'
With the rain and with the fire.

Says there You are.
(There You are)
There You are
In front of me.

The antelopes' white flashing flanks
Sparked in the heart of the Cheyenne breaks,
Only to disappear.
Just like this memory of what once was my home.
And as I move beyond everything I've known,
You pull me near.

And You light the sun to lead me.
Send the wind to be my guide.
Just the wonder of this prairie,
So lonely and so alive.
And the song the moon is singin'
With the rain and with the fire.

Says there You are.
(There You are)
There You are

And Your kingdom sings of a glory.
Of a power that is Yours alone.
And You're the one breathed into the many.
You're faith, You're love, and the hope.
As we lay our hearts before You
Our hands are free to let go.

And there You are.
(There You are)
There You are
In front of me.
