Glancing at my watch, speeding up a bit,
Hoping to accomplish every goal I've set;
However fast I go, I seem to slip behind;
I fear I've wasted too much time,
. . .
Longing to have love, the kind that's true and deep,
But I can't always give what someone needs from me,
'Cause sometimes I am weak, or sometimes don't know how,
And then I get so scared,

CHORUS: But then a sweet surprising mercy
Comes on the evening breeze,
And I can hear redemption
In the raindrops falling through the trees;
Nothing can explain this calm that I feel,
And the troubles deep inside simply start to heal,
When that sweet surprising mercy
Comes to me.

Watching every week, the people on t.v.,
Think I know them better than my neighbor 'cross the street.
Afraid I've fallen short, here safe inside,
Not reaching out toward people's lives,

Starting to suspect, I won't be number one,
Might not find success before this life is done,
Where's all the potential others used to see?
Now I fear I'll never be all I was meant to be,


It comes unexpected,
And free like the rain and the wind;
It comes like refreshment,
And I can see joy again,
