Sitting here in the dark

the power has gone out

so I think about my life

and where I am today

I think about the ones I love

as well as the ones who left

I hear the wind chimes

singing there beautiful song

It's funny how a clanging noise

can be so inspiring to me

with the woodstove

releasing the heat within

warms my body and heart

just like the love of Jesus

warms my soul

Every thing becomes so peaceful

when the power goes out

All the distractions are gone

and it's a time to focus

on the things that really matter.

What would happen

if the power went out on you

who would you turn to

who would get you through

what would you think about

what would you do

when the power goes out

on little ol' you
