Songs and stories about life.

This song is really special to me as I wrote it when I was pregnant with our first born daughter (Nyah). I was imagining God's hand crafting a miracle in my belly. A 'Loom' is the wooden apparatus used for making fabric by weaving yarn or thread.

Melissa Otto

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139)

'Lightfall' is my testimony song. It speaks of a person that has been away from Jesus for so long that the beginning lyric is, "It's been some time..." Although it does not capture my testimony in its entirety, it does give you a glimpse into what I went through to get to where I am.
