I was glad when they said unto me: we will go into the house of the Lord.

Communion Anthem    The Road Home    Stephen Paulus (1949-2014)
Text by Michael Dennis Browne

Tell me where is the road I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost, so long ago?
All these years I have wandered, oh, when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?

After wind, after rain, when the dark is done,
As I wake from a dream in the gold of day
Through the air there’s a calling from far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.

Rise up. follow me, come away is the call,
With love in your heart as the only song;
There is no such beauty where you belong,
Rise up, follow me, I will lead you home.
