lyrics

“o, it hurts, it hurts,” i cried,
“all this growing up is getting old…
my heart is wax, my bones are dry,
Shepherd come and fetch me to the fold!”

run, run, River! shape this stubborn stone!
i’ll crumble like clay unless Your mercy shows.

“be still and know, take heart,” He said,
“clearer; stunning; soon the sun will shine!
for where you go, I first have tread and
brighter in the darkness looms the light.

faith, faith, child!
see how you’ve been blessed!
o, come to Me, you weary, I’ll give you rest.”

like spring after winter, and sun on the leaves;
o, come to the fountain to dance where He breathes.
like trumpets and harps and every jubilant song;
the last tear has fallen and sorrow has gone.
when all things are made new,
everything sad will come untrue!

rejoice, rejoice! arise, proclaim!
awake, my heart and sing, o sing, my soul!
for salvation knows no other name!
Lord Jesus, give me strength that i’d be bold.

what comes tomorrow can worry for itself.
till coming Glory i’ve hope, i’ve You, my Help.

like spring after winter, and sun on the leaves;
o, come to the fountain to dance where He breathes.
like trumpets and harps and every jubilant song;
the last tear has fallen and sorrow has gone.
when all things are made new,
everything sad will come untrue!

about

pilgrims, we Seattle, Washington

each of us is prone to wander while we are here abroad. and
whatever which way we wonder (be it all for gain or blunder),
still holes in hearts point, pining after all we can’t quite know.
onwards! upwards! ever fonder we grow! never dimmer
but refining all our brilliance, chasing that Light.

and so we sing. songs for hope; for joy.
for all of us our wayward, journeying on.
going home.
