lyrics

Brother you’ve been weary for a long long while
You’ve been shouldering this burden every day of your life
As you journey slow and steady
Down this narrow road
Now you’re closer to my house than you are to your own
Now you’re closer to my house than you are to your own

Brother you’ve been walking where so few dare to go
It’s been perilous and lonely on this path of your own
But I see how you’ve stayed true to me
Come sun or come storm
Now you’re closer to my house than you are to your own
Now you’re closer to my house than you are to your own

You’re closer… yeah, you’re closer

Can’t you feel the wind a blowin’
Tellin’ you you’re not alone
Can’t you see the trees a shakin’
Just feel your heart a racin’
Every step a little closer
Now you’re journey’s almost over
Just reach out and take my hand
I’ll lead you to the Promised Laaaaaaaaaaand!
