lyrics

Father what have you in hand
A land that bore a child to wear upon your knee

Moses went down to the Creek
To wash our sins with hair that ran down to his feet
To wash our sins as far as blindness can see

Follow me out to the yard
And I'll place my promise
Upon your hand so we can be

Father take me by the hand
And lead me where you first fell down upon you knees
And lead me where you first cried out upon your knees

Give me another name
Make me a brighter shirt
Send me a flaming word in the garden next to Peter
Where I wait and sleep
And awake with fever
Like a clawing child in the garden next to Peter

Will you forgive who I am
Or did you forsake who I am
Did you foreknow how I am

To give me another name
Make me a brighter shirt
Send me a flaming word in the garden next to Peter
Where I wait for peace and for my Keeper
But still I find I'm in the garden next to neither

Where you forgive who I am
Or did you forsake who I am
Did you foreknow who I am
Will you forget who I am
Forget who I am
