Scott, Hillary - Safe Haven Lyrics




My papa was a big 'ol man
He held the world and me in the palm of his hand
He held us altogether
The family corner stone
His voice was deep just like his fate
He'd always call me, "sugar babe"
And what I wouldn't give to hear "I love you" one more time
He loved to read John 3:16
Tapped along to hymns we'd sing
He left us so much more than earthly things

Sometimes when there's no answer
Or no reason for the pain
And I just can't wrap my head around the wire of things that come my way
I still believe you hold a place for us in heaven
So even when my faith on earth is shaken
You're my safe haven

He said my home's not here, no I'm not bound
My home is built on higher ground
And where I'm going, oh goodbye don't mean a thing
There's gonna be some things I miss
But don't forget God promises we'll be together on the other side

Sometimes when there's no answer
Or no reason for the pain
And I just can't wrap my head around the wire of things that come my way
I still believe you hold a place for us in heaven
So even when my faith on earth is shaken
You're my safe haven

Ooh, ooh, oh
It's comfort for my heart that breaks
To know you're in a better place
And that I'll see your loving face again
I still believe you hold a place for us in heaven
So even when my faith on earth is shaken
You're my safe haven
You're my safe haven

My papa was a big 'ol man
He held the world and me in the palm of his hand

    My papa was a big 'ol man
    He held the world and me in the palm of his hand
    He held us altogether
    The family corner stone
    His voice was deep just like his fate
    He'd always call me, "sugar babe"
    And what I wouldn't give to hear "I love you" one more time
    He loved to read John 3:16
    Tapped along to hymns we'd sing
    He left us so much more than earthly things

    Sometimes when there's no answer
    Or no reason for the pain
    And I just can't wrap my head around the wire of things that come my way
    I still believe you hold a place for us in heaven
    So even when my faith on earth is shaken
    You're my safe haven

    You're my safe haven

    My papa was a big 'ol man
    He held the world and me in the palm of his hand

    Beautiful song, heard it for the first time today.   Just when I thought country music had died, this gem comes out.

  4. David Hart

    Great voice!

  5. Cindy Sauer

    This is my first time hearing this song, and I bawled like a baby. I lost my dad less than a year ago and today is the first of his birthday's that he was not here to celebrate. I was so thankful that I got him in church, so I know I will see him again...but I miss him so much.

    This is my song to my Poppie, He passed away 3 years ago next month! We were so close, he was like a dad to me!!

    I suddenly lost my grandfather back in 2009, and this song makes me think of him :) He was a Godly husband and father, and every moment here on earth without him is surreal; I expect to see him every time I go to my grandparents' house. Love you, Grampy.

    PRAISE GOD!!!

    My Grandpa died in 2009 too

    This is a great album.  Hillary just like her mother Linda Davis has a phenomenal singing voice.  Every song on this CD is fantastic.  Safe Haven is co-written by former Statler Brother Jimmy Fortune a great singer/songwriter in his own right.   Wishing Hillary continued success.
