Tell Me About The Song

“Tell me about the song that kept you alive when you felt like nothing else could save you.”

Editorial note :  Post heart transplant, the song I heard in my head over and over, both in the ICU and on the step down, was “Someone Saved My Life Tonight”, Elton John

    I remember being in hospital not long after I was found by a security guard. (I had been the victim of a serious crime and was found with severe injuries and bundled into an ambulance.) I lay there in a hospital bed suddenly feeling all alone in the world. I was absolutely overwhelmed by the situation. I didn’t want anyone in London to know. I had called my sister in Liverpool and she was on the way down. But while I was alone, I felt broken hearted about what had happened to me. It was a nightmare, really.
    But some absolutely beautiful words came back to me from a song…the words are about our Creator knowing us in intricate detail, from the moment we began to develop.

    You saw when I was made in secret,
    My very bones not hidden from your sight.
    You saw my form; its parts were down in writing.
    I love the wonder of your ways
    and praise your might.
    Your knowledge, God, is wondrous, awe-inspiring;
    Of this my soul is very well-aware.
    If I should fear that darkness might enfold me,
    Your spirit, God, would find me, even there

    I had felt so terrified before those words came ringing around my mind. Thinking of them gave me enormous strength and felt like an enormous hug. It’s hard to explain. But I went from feeling overwhelmed to feeling I was ready for the challenges ahead.

    Wow! What an amazing story. First, I hope you’ve recovered from the trauma of that entire event. And secondly, I had the same feeling that I was ready for the challenges. But that didn’t happen for a year. When I got that hug and feeling, it changed me forever.

    “Hold on for one more day” by Wilson Phillips is a song I hear often when I think that things are hopeless.
