Emmy and Grammy-nominated composer Peg Luke has released her latest single, “I Am Home, Lord,” which is a powerful testament to her inspirational drive and resilience. Introducing the remarkable vocal talents of the singer-songwriter, the song, produced by Neal Merrick is accompanied by a clarinet and a string ensemble providing the musical backdrop with piano, drums, and bass.
"I Am Home, Lord" serves as a tribute to the refugees and is dedicated to service members who work tirelessly to safeguard freedom on a worldwide level. The song's main purpose is to honor the unwavering efforts of these individuals who strive to protect the liberties of others. By expressing that a person can find a sense of comfort and belonging as long as they have faith in God, the singer-songwriter seeks to convey the message that one's physical location is not the sole determinant of feeling at home.
The lyrics are written in response to the tragic events occurring in the world, and they go as follows: “War is all around me, I don't know what to do, People killing people, Where is the truth? But I just keep travel'n, I'm tired and cold, Where can I find love and security... Then I remember. I am home, Lord I am home. When I call Your name, I am home. When I feel your presence near me, I am home. When I kneel to pray, I am home. Lead me home.”
