  • Innocence and Suffering, Loneliness and Grace
    Pain and Love and Beauty, Laughter, Death and Faith
    Where the rising fortune, meets the setting sun
    I'm afraid, my friend, when one is left it's just the same as none.

    I will always stand beside you
    Defend you and Mend you, Sanctify you
    I'll Hold you and Keep you and Fight beside you
    I'll follow you down love I'm right behind you

    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through
    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through

    The textbooks on the table, the radio's on the the shelf
    And thank you for the offer, but I'll sing this one myself
    In reverential silence, the crowd sat in the pews
    I climbed and climbed for hours, but oh my what a view.

    I will always stand beside you
    Defend you and Mend you, Sanctify you
    I'll Hold you and Keep you and Fight beside you
    I'll follow you down love I'm right behind you.

    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through
    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through

    I'm surprised you didn't come forward, when the cops dragged me away
    There's a museum in the Netherlands I hope to see again someday
    There's a painting of a woman gathering wood, It's almost dark.
    In a world bereft of meaning, there's a flicker in the hearth

    I will always stand beside you
    Defend you and Mend you, Sanctify you
    I'll Hold you and Keep you and Fight beside you
    I'll follow you down love I'm right behind you.
    I'll follow you down love I'm right behind you
    Follow you down love I'm right behind you

    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through
    God make a road straight, God make a road true
    Saint Isabelle is coming through.
