There were pictures everywhere
And my teacher said that this was His house,
So I knew He must be there
And even though I never saw His face
I know He walked the halls,
And I knew that He could hear
When I sang that I could be His sunbeam
That I could love my neighbor
That I could fold my arms and bow my head
And I knew He was just around the corner
In the light behind the stained glass
I wasn't quite sure where,
But He was always there

When my freckles went away
And all the dresses and the lace-trimmed socks
Began to get too small
I saw churches everywhere, I saw so many children go inside
And I wondered if He knew my name at all
But I sang that I would be my brother's keeper
And I felt the tempest raging
But I kept singing "Peace, peace, be still"
And I hoped that He was still around the corner
In the light behind the stained glass
I searched everywhere
And He was always there

And I stand all amazed
Confused at he grace He gives to me
With all the ways I wander
A pilgrim and a stranger
But in the distance I can always see
The light that kindly leads

I am older now
But every day I try to be a little more
Like the child I used to be
And I think the times
I start to feel that way the most
Are the moments that I pray
And when I raise my voice to sing
To praise the Lord Almighty
The King of Creation
Somehow I know that He can hear
By the way my spirit trembles
He's just around the corner
In the light behind the stained glass
It doesn't matter where
He is always there
