Fair Trade and Sara Groves are proud to present "To The Dawn" – impacting radio April 12.

"I have felt compelled for several years to write songs for and about the work of International Justice Mission.  I often picture these friends in my mind as I go through my day, and wonder what kind of encouragement they might need.  They regularly choose to enter dark places where violence and fear are the norm.  They are mothers and fathers themselves who are committed to seeing individuals and families experience flourishing.  They are motivated by their faith to participate in the long processes that will transform judicial systems and bring protection for the poor.  So, when I was recently asked to find a song about ‘light’ for an IJM event, it was a challenge!  Many of the songs I found were happy-clappy songs that didn’t seem to fit the gravity of darkness, the genuine necessity of light… until, I found the hymn ‘There’s a Light Upon the Mountains.’  The original lyric is worth looking up, but the line that caught me was at the end of the second verse, the hearts of men are stirring.  Greed, envy, terror, violence, meanness – it gets dark – but our hearts are stirred, to the dawn." -Sara Groves
Originally recorded on her hymns album Abide With Me, "To The Dawn" is one of three songs remixed by producer Don Chaffer as part of the To The Dawn: Reimagined EP.
