Far Celestial Shore

Album: One True Vine (2013)
  • There's a place I know for certain
    I will someday see
    When I lay down my burden
    And look on Galilee
    Way beyond the surly bonds of earth and hate and war
    On a far celestial shore

    There's a valley of crystal waters
    Vines adorn the hill
    Every bough is heavy with fruit
    You can pick your fill
    There's a land of plenty where no child shall want for more
    On a far celestial shore

    And I'll know such jubilation
    Joy and exaltation when I see my lord

    There's a choir and congregation
    Oooh how sweet the sound
    But laughter too is everywhere
    Grey faces are not found
    Hallelujah's rise up from a whisper to a roar
    On a far celestial shore

    Solo verse

    Way beyond the surly bonds of earth and hate and war
    On a far celestial shore
    There's a land of plenty where no child shall want for more
    On a far celestial shore
    Hallelujah's rise up from a whisper to a roar
    On a far celestial shore

    On a far far celestial shore
