God clothes all the lilies,
though they will one day fall.
So I, a humble sunflower,
will stand to heed the call -
to set my gaze upon the Son
as I ponder my fate -
so when beneath the pall I’ll know
ever unclouded grace.
Whereas we open the album with the sunrise and the awakening of my protagonist sunflower, the album closes with this lullaby wherein our hero says goodnight to his/her source of life, meaning, direction while yet waiting in faith and obedience for the promise of morning's light.
A choir of sunflowers again join in song.
The main track (including my vocals and guitar.. and the sounds of birds in the distance) was recorded in the backyard of one of our home studios in North Carolina. The choir voices were recorded later, at my apartment in NYC, and belong to friends from Trinity Grace Church.
