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.

Lyrics:

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
