Words of encouragement from Rich Mullins

Just listening to Rich Mullins. I heartily recommend him to one and all; even nonbelievers often find they like his music, especially fans of hammered dulcimer.

Right now I'm listening to Somewhere:
Somewhere between the lost and the found
We're all hanging empty, empty and upside-down
But I'm hanging on, though the fall may tempt me
And I believe in the dawn, though I tremble in the night
Somewhere amidst these ins and these outs
There's a fine line of purpose I follow even now
Through the haze of despair that confuses and hurts us
I look to see that You're there, and I run toward Your light
Somewhere, beyond these reasons and feelings
Somwehere, beyond the passion and fatigue
I know You're there
And that Your Spirit is leading me somewhere beyond all this

I wanted to do a montage at OneTrueMedia to share at least a snippet, but alas for some reason my computer stores files in an incompatible format. Grrrr! Though you can hear "The Color Green" here, "My Deliverer" (written by Mullins, performed by his Ragamuffin Band after he died) here, and "Calling Out Your Name (with awesome hammered dulcimer) here.

And for the best, best, best: "Growing Young" is here.
