lead me on lyrics – new direction

lead me on to a place where the river runs
into your keeping, oh
lead me on, the awaited deliverance
comforts the seeking, lead me on

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

lead me on to a place where the river runs
into your keeping, oh
lead me on, the awaited deliverance
comforts the seeking, lead me on

waiting for the train
labeled 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

singing lead me on to a place where the river runs
into your keeping, oh
lead me on, the awaited deliverance
comforts the seeking, lead me on

man hurts man
time and time again
and we drown in the wake of our power
somebody tell me why

lead me on, lead me on to a place where the river runs
into your keeping, oh
lead me on, the awaited deliverance
comforts the seeking, oh

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, oh

lead me on, lead me on
to a place where the rivers run
oh, lead me on, lead me on
to a place where the river runs
