Desert Father

When we were young we walked where we wanted to, life was ours.

And now we’re grown old we go where we’re told, the Lord’s spirit calls.

He’s singing “follow my road to sorrow and joy, be intertwined and find all things are under My wings and rise given time”

Oh my, brother sun, sister moon, all children of light fly around the world and let the glory be unfurled all things are made new.

We’re marchign on to a spirit’s song that no man can cage. In lands of dead wood that reject the good from our old Father’s hands.

But we run free and weep gracefully in a world dark and cold. Hold on, all you who wait by the blue shores for Him to part the water. Desert Father show us a new way, the impossible dream through the deep and the unseen; carry us home

  1. Oh man, Josh Garrels, such good poetry. His wife writes some of it too. Does he ever tour in KC? I’ve seen him here several times. Wowza.
