From the album This Much I Understand.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Every once in a while on a summer night
The sunset glows and I see the light
And when the stars come out it dawns on me
There is holy ground underneath my feet

Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I’m overcome
You’ve got a way
Of breaking through
‘Til I’m surprised by joy
I’m amazed by you

Just the other day when I kissed my son
I was blown away by what you’ve done
‘Cause when he smiles at me with his toothless grin
All at once I see your hand on him

Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I’m overcome
You’ve got a way
Of breaking through
‘Til I’m surprised by joy
I’m amazed by you

And when I least expect it
You surround me
You astound me with your love

Surprised by joy
Awash in love
Just one taste of grace
And I’m overcome
You’ve got a way
Of breaking through
‘Til I’m surprised by joy
I’m amazed by you
