Story Behind The Song

Language English Era 2000 and later


I went on a trip that seemed so far away
The upper peninsula of Michigan fame
The first time away from my family and my home

Apart from my mother's motherly touch
A little embarassed that I missed her so much
My friend tried assuring me that I was never alone

Eleven. I was eleven
I was eleven when I needed a loving embrace
Eleven. I was eleven
I was eleven when I first caught a glimpse of your grace.

For comfort I started to sing an old hymn
The words "Holy Holy" were ingrained within
I hummed to myself and sensing God's loving hand

While walking about on the cliff of a lake
I carelessly strolled as if I wasn't awake
That same loving hand protected me from a great fall

Holy Holy Holy Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee

Eleven years later I came to know You.
I found Your forgiveness at age twenty two.
I remember that hymn I sung at eleven years old.
