Peter wrote the music for this song. Larry and I added the lyrics. Margriet Brasz joins Peter in the recording. - Elton, 3 February 2010


(Verse 1)
When I'm feeling tired
When the road is long
You restore my soul
Giving me a song

When I'm all alone
When the clouds appear
You call out my name
And remove all fear

(Chorus 1)
I run with open arms
To You, You're always there
You know my every care

(Verse 2)
When the colors fade
When the teardrops fall
You light up my eyes
When I hear You call

When I've lost my way
When my hope is gone
You are reaching out
Urging me along

(Repeat Chorus 1)
I run with open arms
To You, You're always there
You know my every care

(Chorus 2)
The shelter of Your arms
Is where I long to be
You're everything to me

Jesus, I run for shelter to You
(You're calling out my name)
Jesus, I run for shelter to You
(You're urging me along)
Jesus, I run for shelter to You
(You know my every care)
Jesus, I run for shelter to You
(Into Your arms)
