This song was written and recorded by Twila Paris… and was included on her album, Where I Stand.
Twila Paris (born December 28, 1958) is a Contemporary Christian Music singer-songwriter, author, and pianist. Since 1980, Paris has released 22 albums, amassed 33 #1 Christian Radio singles, and was named the Gospel Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year 3 years in a row. Many of her earlier songs are found in church hymnals or otherwise sung in church settings. She was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2015.
As a child, she released her first album, Little Twila Paris, in 1965. The album included songs drawn from among those she sang with her family in their evangelistic outreaches.
Paris released her first full-length album, Knowin’ You’re Around, in 1981, and along the way she has written books, recorded children’s music, and created worship songs.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Paris released mainly contemporary Christian pop songs. But in recent years, she has focused on recording new versions of some of her worship standards and writing new praise and worship music. She now lives in northwest Arkansas.
I first heard Twila Paris while attending college, and I thought she was done recording. But, her career had a revival which allowed for her to write more praise and worship music.
This song reminds us that God is always for us… and after us… and on our side.

I know sometimes it’s hard to believe it, but Love’s been following you.
From where I stand I’m able to see it, and Love’s been following you.
All through the stormy night, didn’t you see the Light?
Goodness and mercy, right there behind you; Love’s been following you.
Some days your heart just couldn’t be colder, but Love’s been following you.
All you have earned just makes you feel older, but Love’s been following you.
You think that no one cares. Still, Love is always there.
He would go anywhere just to find you; Love’s been following you.
Love has been following you. Love’s been following you.
Love has been following you… following you… following you.
Somehow the road just seems to get longer, but Love’s been following you.
Wait for the One who will make you stronger, ’cause Love’s been following you.
Wherever you go from here, run far away from fear.
Keep one thing very near and believe it’s true… (CHORUS)
