Where We Belong, my new favorite song

Josh Blakesley, WhereWeBelong, track 8 on the CD entitled FreeI was watching Life on the Rock on EWTN tonight (Dec 29 2011) and it was a clip show. Pretty good as such things go, but right at the very end they played some clips from the 2011 World Youth Day. The first song that played in the background — well, it finally ended. Then another song came on. And that one I liked. I mean, really liked. Grabbed my trusty phone and did a quick search and found it. Now I’m listening to Where We Belong as I type this post, track #8 on the CD entitled Free by Josh Blakesley. Lyrics below. I really like this song. And the band. And this guy’s voice. Yay! Good Catholic music! :)

Where We Belong, Lyrics

A city on a hill
where our strength is filled,
a beacon in the night
shines a holy light.
Let the darkness fall;
there’s a new day for us all.

This is where we belong,
the place that we call home.
We gather as one body in one Lord.
This is where we belong
the place that we call home
we come to live and love where we belong.

A chosen place revealed,
people being healed,
new life will begin,
the dead will rise again.
Open up the doors
and let the healing waters pour. (Refrain)

This is where we give our hearts,
this is where we share our faith,
this is where we make a diff’rence,
right here in this place! (Refrain)


About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!
