Lead Me On

Album: Lead Me On (1988)
Charted: 96
  • 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 a 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
    Labeled with a golden star
    Heavy hearted boarding
    Whispers in the dark
    "Where are we 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: x2] Writer/s: AMY GRANT GILL, WAYNE KIRKPATRICK, MICHAEL WHITAKER SMITH
