04. Land of My Father

Saints and Sinners
by Matt Maher



 

There’s a sweetness in Your presence

All Your children running home

Singing songs of exultation

Lifting up Your name



In the land of my Father, oh my soul will sing



Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

We sing Holy, Holy, my eyes have seen the glory

Of the great God Almighty

There’s a patience in Your Spirit

Waiting for that day to come

Peace beyond all understanding

Never-ending joy



God Your goodness, I have tasted

Jesus I have seen

Behind the Song:
I had been in England, writing with Luke Hellenbroth, a guy from a great church there. I had this idea for a song based on 'Thee Our Father,' all the while looking at the kingdom of God as 'the land of my father.' It's an allegory for heaven in a way. I finished the song with David Leonard and Leslie Jordan from All Sons &Daughters. They're tremendous songwriters. That song, and even where it sits on the record, is what I call the 'honeymoon phase' of the Christian life, where there's a sense of enjoying who God is and what He's doing in your life. If somebody's on a journey, this is where the weather's great and it's a nice day out. There are those moments. Just like there are moments as a parent where you kids are great, they're dancing along to a Taylor Swift song, and you think it's the cutest thing in the world; and life's great. - Matt Maher
