And I Will Run To You

Kandysile is the beautiful girl in the upper right hand corner

I will never forget the last time I heard this song...

It was on the Oprah show and Oprah was visiting an orphanage in South Africa. They brought out a beautiful little 11 year old girl called Kandysile to Oprah. Kandysile kept her beautiful head down the entire time....

The orphanage director explained that, when Kandysile's parents died of AIDS, neighbourhood men came into her house and raped her every night. She kept her head down because she felt so much shame at what had happened.

But when they did a follow-up on Kandysile, this beautiful little girl sang this song...

I was so surprised to hear an Australian song coming out from this little girl's lips :> But it brought tears to my eyes to see how Daddy God had taken this broken little girl into His arms and was healing her....

Your eyes are on the sparrow
And Your hands they comfort me
From the ends of the earth
To the depths of my heart
Let Your mercy and strength be seen

You called me to Your purpose
As angels understand
For Your glory
May You draw all men
As Your love and grace demand

And I will run to You
To Your words of truth
Not by might, not by power
But by the Spirit of God
Yes, I will run the race
Till I see Your face
Oh Let me live in the glory
Of Your grace
