Tammy Ann Winn: Published Music

Gently

(© 2003, Tammy Ann Winn ~ ASCAP)
I went to play a festival
Another gig, another town
The lady that greeted me made a gesture with a book
Grateful I set it aside

Another place, another time
Another lonely, sleepless night
I reached for that book and began to read

It gently opened my eyes
The challenge was no surprise
The words were different and they pierced my heart
I know it’s time to start

It talked about false converts
A man, a church, a city
The quest should be for righteousness not bliss
Misguided I have been

I see more clearly as I take a step back
Peace comes with perspective
We are missionaries sent with a call
What I offer is my song

Lord gently open my eyes
Challenge me, surprise
Your life in Christ has pierced my heart
Help me to start

Lord gently open my eyes
Challenge me, surprise
Your life in Christ has pierced my heart
Help me to start
