lead me on lyrics – bethany dillon

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
soon the sun was faded
and freedom was a song
i heard them singing when the day was done
singing to the holy one

lead me on, lead me on
to a place where the river runs
into your keeping
lead me on, lead me on
the awaited deliverance comforts the seeking
lead on

bitter cold terrain
echoes of a slamming door
chambers made for sleeping forever
voices like thunder
in a mighty roar
crying to the lord

man hurts man
time and time, time again
though we drown in the wake of our power
somebody tell me why
