AMY GRANT lyrics - Lead Me On

AMY GRANT
"Lead Me On"
(Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Wayne Kirkpatrick)

Shoulder to the wheel
For someone else's selfish gain
Here there is no choosing
Working the clay
Wearing their anger like a ball and chain
Fire in the field
Underneath the blazing sun
But soon the sun was faded
And freedom was a song
I heard them singing when the day was done
Singing to the holy one

[Chorus:]
Lead me on
Lead me on
To a place where the river runs
Into your keeping, oh
Lead me on
Lead me on
The awaited deliverance
Comforts the seeking...lead on

Waiting for the train
Labelled with a golden star
Heavy hearted boarding
Whispers in the dark
"Where are they going-is it very far?"
Bitter cold terrain
Echoes of a slamming door
In chambers made for sleeping
Forever
Voices like thunder in a mighty roar
Cry to the lord

[Chorus]

Man hurts man
Time and time, time again
And we drown in the wake of our power
Somebody tell me why

[Chorus 2x]
