You Oh God

Andover brought me closer to God
{i was losing him before i came}
During years of famine, revolution, and economic collapse
{where were you when they needed you}
And I was caught up in classes, colleges, and friends
{you were always there to keep me safe}
I didn’t think religion mattered
{don’t ever let me go never never}
Until I sat in the chapel on a muggy rain-soaked day
{your doors were open}
And I told you everything that was wrong and right and okay {you listened listened listened}
There was an overwhelming sense of serenity, ease
{i feel you in my heart spreading love and salvation}
And I realized this is what I had been missing every Sunday
{praying to you oh God oh God my Lord and Savior}
Through strife and joy, I know where I can find you at Andover
{waiting for me in that stately glorious place}
Amidst the chaos of life, I can find my inner peace.
