Chart History
From the album Camino Palmero, Wherever You Will Go was a #5 Pop hit for The Calling in 2002.

Songwriter:
Aaron Kamin & Alex Band


J's Journal:
A song of hope for Christians who have sown the Word of God in tears (Psalm 126:5-6) in hopes of a harvest among non-Christian friends and family members. Godís word never comes back void without accomplishing the purpose for which He sent it out (Isaiah 55:11) This song was a last-minute candidate for the "Grace Period" CD along with "Flurry" by Puddle of Mudd. I got an idea for "Flurry" in time, but not for "Wherever You Will Go." When I got the idea for "Wherever You Will Sow," it knocked me out. It was like the song was slowly writing itself over time and I was just watching. I totally believe that God inspired it, although I never heard an audible voice or anything telling me what to write. I know this is the favorite song of a number of ApologetiX fans, particularly women, and I know it's one of my favorites and my wife's favorites, too. But I can't take credit for it. I remember getting some of the lyrics for this song, particularly the chorus, in the spring of 2003 while driving around the North Hills of Pittsburgh and some of the rest of them in the second and third verse in while sitting up late one night watching T.V. at my in-laws house in Mayfield KY after everybody had gone to bed. We explain what this song is all about in the intro to the "live" version on "New & Used Hits: The Best of ApologetiX Vol. 1 & 2."

Wherever You Will Sow
Parody of "Wherever You Will Go" by The Calling
(Matthew 13:1-30; Mark 4:1-20, 4:26-29; Luke 8:1-15; Isaiah 55:10-11; Psalm 126:5-6; 1 Corinthians 15:35-45)

So lately youíre wondering who really cares to take Christís grace
Well, Christ taught that seeds of new life get scattered on Earthís face
If a grain of wheat shall fall, yeah, fall upon good soil
In between the sand and stone, Good News makes that crop to grow
Yes, Iíve learned that Christís word will grow wherever you will sow
Wait a while, hold out hope -- it grows wherever you will sow
And maybe youíre fried now, afraid youíve wasted bags of grain
You watered, you tried to do your darnedest, all in vain
If as great a faith as Paulís can follow after Saul
Then thereís hope for someone out there who you think rejected you
Yes, Iíve learned that Christís word will grow wherever you will sow
Thereís all kinds of ground though Ė it grows wherever you will sow
Some it may hit the rocks, some it may hit the road
Some it may hit the thorns
I know now thereís dry ground but lives you love might still grow strong
Give their hearts some more time and state the truth for all mankind
Yes, Iíve learned that Christís word will grow wherever you will sow
We all cry, weíll shout though -- as Psalm 126 will show
We might return back cryiní Ė Christís word is never useless though
Read Isaiah 55 Ė by verse 11 you will know
It grows wherever you will sow

Psalm 126:5-6
