Celebration


I grew up here, here in Celebration, You can't find it anywhere on the map
It's a place that lives and breathes within you, It's a place that calls you back

Sixteen years in Celebration, Sixteen years of love and joy
Sixteen years of people saying, Trust the God inside my boy.

Celebration's winding river valley, Seems to hold me safe within God's hands
Here you helped me deal with pain and sorrow, Here you helped me understand

You're my water when I'm thirsty, You're my Sun when I am cold
You're my food when I am hungry, Part of every story I've ever told

Now I'm home, home in Celebration, Now I'm back here blessed with you again
I can see God shining in and through you, Namaste, Namaste my friends

Sixteen years in Celebration, Sixteen years of love and joy
Sixteen years of people saying, Trust the God inside my boy.

I grew up here, here in Celebration, You can't find it anywhere on the map
It's a place that lives and breathes within you, It's a place that calls you back

Back to people who will love you, For the truth inside of you
For the beauty of your being in Celebration me with you.
