Below My Feet

  • You were cold as the blood through your bones
    And the light which led us from our chosen homes
    Well I was lost

    And now I sleep
    Sleep the hours and that I can't weep
    When all I knew was steeped in blackened holes
    I was lost

    Keep the Earth below my feet
    For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
    Let me learn from where I have been
    Keep my eyes to serve and my hands to learn
    Keep my eyes to serve and my hands to learn

    And I was still
    I was under your spell
    When I was told by Jesus all was well
    So all must be well

    Just give me time
    You know your desires and mine
    So wrap my flesh in ivy and in twine
    For I must be well

    Keep the Earth below my feet
    For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
    Let me learn from where I have been
    Well keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn
    keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

    Keep the Earth below my feet
    For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
    Let me learn from where I have been
    Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn
    Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn Writer/s: Benjamin Walter David Lovett, Edward James Milton Dwane, Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall
