Sam wrote it after interviewing "slow artist" Makoto Fujimura for the Resound Worship Podcast's 12 Song Challenge. His aim was to create an intentionally sparse song at a slow pace with a richly layered arrangement.

The recording was made by Sam with additional production from Timo Scharnowski and lead vocals by Gemma Scharnowski.


Lead me to a place of rest.
Lead me to a place of peace.
Lead me to a place of quiet
in your presence, Jesus.

I find my home in you.
I find myself in you.
I find my peace anew
in your presence, Jesus.

Longing to lay down my load.
Longing to lay down my shame.
Longing to lay down my striving
in your presence, Jesus.
