Dear Heart

Post December 21 Dear Heart.jpg

Another song introduction for you!

This song was partly inspired by a passage from C.S. Lewis' book "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"...

There's a part where all the heroes are on a ship (the Dawn Treader), and they sail into a dark fog. They sail for what seems like forever--losing all track of time, and they get completely lost.


Finally, Lucy calls out for Aslan's help.

Ahead, they see a beam of light cut through the fog, and a bird flies down and around the mast. As it flies around them, Lucy is the only one who hears these words...

"Courage, dear heart."

Able to follow after the bird, the ship escapes the darkness.

I've always loved that part of the book, and when I started writing this song, I needed to hear those words myself: "Courage, dear heart."
"Dear Heart" will be on Wander With Me.
