lyrics

what a ways we’ve wandered,
knowing only where we’ve been,
it’s a wonder how we found our way here…
like a filament’s glow, slowly
all new lights begin
with a warming and a waiting to come clear.

when away the sun is hiding,
pray patience perseveres
(there’s hope enough
to hold us for the while).
for He Who holds the heavens
so carries you, my dear,
the author of the joy behind your smile.

sing out your song, little bird gathering seeds
and mind what your mama’s always said.
hear how my voice calls for your harmonies
while Heaven hollers the tune in my head.

courage now, my darling,
you’re anchored in the veil;
steadfast is His Love that hides you.
He is honey to the mouth,
He is strength to the frail and
it’s He i see that’s shining from inside you.

sing out your song, little bird gathering seeds
and mind what your mama’s always said.
hear how my voice calls for your harmonies
while Heaven hollers the tune in my head.

and this i pray,
that your love abounds
more and more still;
growing in grace.
being filled with the
fruits of righteousness,
seeking His face
to the glory and praise
of the Father Who waits in longing.

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.
