lyrics

As I wander world of toiling
I hear glory down the line
I am guided by your voice that
sings me up into the sky

You're the blanket o'er my darkness
your light covers all fears
rolls like thunder to my silence
strikes like lighting to my ears

I hear a singing in my spirit
and it's calling me back home
to the place where I'm bound to be gone
I hear a singing in my spirit
and it's calling me back home
sounds something like:
"Come back home...your work on the burying land is done, come home"

(guitar solo)

I am sailing up to meet you
can't see the Earth for clouds so high
when the saints are there to greet you
know you've reached the sweet by and by

In the night yeah when I'm sleeping
and that serpent comes to see
that your song's shelter to my bedside
singing "whatever is to be shall be"

I hear a slinging in my spirit
and it's calling me back home
to the place where I'm bound to be gone
I hear a singing in my spirit
and it's calling me back home
sounds something like:
"Come back home...your work on the burying land is done,
come home"

sounds something like:
"Come back home...
your work on the burying land is done,
come home"
