Story

Melody in the mode of a traditional Celtic ballad, lyric echoing a Native American vision quest, recorded with voice and percussion only.

Lyrics

An eagle flies across the mountain

the sunlight fades, a star appears

a voice is calling from the wilderness

the light of God is drawing near

 

there is no one to walk beside you,

there is no one to take your hand

there is no turning from your destiny

the time of God is close at hand

 

what is this fear so deep inside you?

what is this trembling in the air?

what is this sighing in the branches?

the voice of God is everywhere

 

you cannot hold it to your body,

you cannot hold it in your mind

as sure as water slips between the stones

the hour of God is passing by

 

lay down your burdens and your meanings

lay down the words you have been told

lift up your life and leave this place behind

the place of God is in your soul
