„And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”- Ephesians 5:2
Josh Garrels – Hiding Place
Josh Garrels is a popular singer/songwriter based in Portland, Oregon.
He writes, “ This past week I worked hard to write, record, and produce the song “Hiding Place,” created especially for the One Million Thumbprints campaign. When my children asked why I was writing the song and why I was going to give it away, I told them about the desperate plight of women and children fleeing for their lives in war torn areas of the world. I also told them about the importance of living generously so as to help others in their time of need. My daughter Heron proceeded open her own piggy bank and draft a letter to One Million Thumbprints. Would you consider giving generously for the sake of those in need as well?”
The funds of the One Million Thumbprints campaign and their partnership with the humanitarian work of World Relief will support grassroots-level peace building to end violence against women and restore survivors in war torn areas such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Iraq, and Syria.

Somewhere, out there,
Can anybody hear my prayer
And save me, from this dark land
If I had wings,
I would fly away from everything
That hurts me, and tears me down
Is there a home, for a mother and a child
In a world, with no place left to hide
We will run, though way is dark and long
We will sing, you’re our hope, you are our song
Lord! Take my hand.
Lord! Help me stand.
Days are getting colder,
I can see the soldiers
Marching up to burn us down
I take my momma’s right hand,
Tears are on my face and
She says, “Son, it’s time to summon the courage now”
Run for your life child,
Flee into the night while
We still have the chance to make out of here alive
And even though we walk through
The valley of death you
Shall fear no evil, you will survive
Cause there’s a home, for a mother and a child
In a world, only one place left to hide
So we will run, though the way is rough and long
We will sing, alleluia to our God
Lord! You’ve overcome.
Lord! Lead us on
