Tim McGraw gave country music lovers a taste of the new Friday when he released God Moves the Pen, adding it to two ultimate versions of his album, Here on Earth.

Here on Earth, the 16th studio album from Tim McGraw, came out last August, when the country was shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart. McGraw certainly is consistent. It was the fourth straight decade the country star has produced at least one No. 1 album.

The Here on Earth ultimate album is befitting a deluxe label. McGraw dropped the lyric video for his new song God Moves the Pen. The song, of course, is about a lofty, timeless love. The lyrics bring up the idea of divine words, from those penned by William Shakespeare to Hank Williams.

Or, they’re simple phrases written in lipstick on a bathroom mirror, or scrawled on a post-it note stuck on a fridge. Maybe the words are even high up on a small town’s water tank. In other words, true love notes are inspired by God.

Tim McGraw Song Makes Case That Love Notes Are Divine Lyrics

Here are the lyrics:

Shakespeare writing on a piece of paper. Hank Williams singing on an old guitar.
Both of them trying to find the words, in somewhere up above the stars.
But I’ve seen it there in old love letters, stuck to the fridge on a post-it note.
Red lipstick on a bathroom mirror, or tucked in the pocket of a Cowboys coat

Written in the sky, written in the sand, on the back of a car dragging old tin cans.
True love declared, brushing paint, way up there on a small town water tank.
Carved in an oak, or tattooed on the skin.
Love moves the heart, God moves the pen.

Saying “I miss you daddy” in blue Crayola. X’s and O’s in sidewalk chalk.
I’ve seen “I heart Jenny” on an overpass. When the tongue is just too tired to talk.

Written in the sky, written in the sand, on the back of a car dragging old tin cans.
True love declared, brushing paint, way up there on a small town water tank.
Carved in an oak, or tattooed on the skin.
Love moves the heart, God moves the pen.

New Album Also Features Undivided, Two Movie Songs

The new Tim McGraw Ultimate Edition of Here on Earth will include God Moves the Pen. And it’ll also feature Undivided, McGraw’s collaboration with Tyler Hubbard. That song was released in January. The two performed it at President Joe Biden’s inauguration concert. The album also will include two Tim McGraw songs from movie soundtracks. Keep Your Eyes on Me with wife Faith Hill is from The Shack. And Gravity is from Free Solo.

Tim McGraw announced the new, deluxe albums, Friday, on his social media accounts. He posted:

“When we started dreaming up this project….we went in and recorded over 20 songs. So we’re gonna give you more! #HereOnEarth Ultimate Edition is out next Friday, April 16 with a few new ones I can’t wait to share with you. “
