Sitting on a Hillside

Story Behind The Song

This is the very first song I wrote after becoming a Christian. It will always be very special to my heart. When I became a Christian, I threw away all the old songs I had written, and all my old journals in the trash can and began over with Jesus. This was a beautiful first beginning.

Sitting on a hillside, Lord
I'm thinking just of You
Gazing at the pine cones
And the little chipmunks too
The clouds are sailing in the sky.
And we are here, Just you and I

Chorus: Oh Jesus Christ
It feels so nice to know
That You love me.

When I see the wonders of this earth:
Wild lilacs and a child's birth,
Horses running and the honeybees,
Tiny sprouts and ancient trees
Well, I can't help knowing, Lord,
Your Spirit tells me so:
That every bush and blade of grass
was meant by you to grow,
Oh I want to thank you Lord,
All the days that I am here
For coming right into my life
And always staying near

All the brothers and the sisters, Father,
That You gave, so dear to me
Are filled to the brim with love
'cause Your Son Jesus set us free.
Oh Jesus set us free. Oh Jesus Christ...

Today, oh Lord, I want to pray,
Please, give me strength to go Your way,
To follow your will the best that I can
And learn to love my fellow man.

Oh, Jesus Christ...
It feels so nice to know
How much You love me.
