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

Danielle from Birmingham Alabama Amy Grant & Michael W. Smith are 2 of my all time favorites. As child when I’d sing a song I’d always choose Amy. Our ranges are similar and my aunt always loved her. So did I. After over 25 yrs of going back and forth to the Lord, I’ve found my way gone. I’ve been working hard with voice lessons to regain my ability to sing. The Lord has given my voice strength like never before. I’ve been praying for him to take me bake to when I 1st met Jesus. When I found my 1st love. Not surprisingly he has brought up this beautiful Grant/Smith songs in my heart. I haven’t listened to some in over 20 yrs. it’s like I never missed a day. I praise God for Amy and Michael. I praise him I’m alive today!
Jane from Austin, TxLove this song. One of my favorites from her. I always like to hear this when i'm feeling down.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
