Jill Phillips Album: Writing on the Wall Track: Grand Design
Grand Design Lyrics
About the song: This is another song about trusting God when it isn't easy. It was written before my dad's death, but Andy and I wanted to write a song about how we would want to feel if we ever faced that day. The song isn't specifically about death, it is about facing any really difficult time. We find out what we truly believe in these circumstances. Part of knowing Him as Savior is needing to be saved and turning to Him rather than running away in anger.
Lyrics: I knew it all along that this day was coming Even though I knew it doesn't hurt any less But somehow the suffering draws me to You I could start running in anger But then what's the point of a Savior
I feel the pain but it still doesn't change who You are Nothing I feel is outside of the reach of Your arms My whole world could crumble but all of the pieces remain In Your hands that are waiting to put them together again
Just like I know You will in Your own time, in Your own wisdom One day I'll look back and see the grand design Maybe it will make sense then, these questions I have But with it all here front and center Sometimes it's hard to remember
I could start running in anger But then what's the point of a Savior
