Carry me home

I had a childhood
Faraway and long ago
Carry me home
Carry me home

I had a marriage
But it came unsewn
Carry me home
Carry me home

And I had a family
But my kids are grown
Carry me home
Carry me home

And I had a lover
But the bird has flown
Carry me home
Carry me home

Carry me home
To the silver sea
Carry me home, sweet heart
Thy carriage waits for me

I had beliefs
And I let them go
And I had ideas about life
And I let them go

And I had a knowledge
And I let it go
And I had a wisdom
And I let it go

But I had icons
So I let them go
Graven images
And I let them all go

I had safe places
And I let them go
Familiar faces
And I let them go

Carry me home
To the light I can already see
Carry me home, sweet heart
Thy carriage waits for me

Love lies beyond meaning
Carry me home
Nothing is beyond redemption
Carry me home

I give you my whole heart
Carry me home
I give you my only song
Carry me home

I call on my ancestors
Carry me home
I call on my angels
Carry me home

I come to the mountain
Carry me home
I come to the river
Carry me home

Carry me home
Am I pure enough yet for Thee?
Carry me home, sweet heart
Thy carriage waits for me

Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária

Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária
Jezsu, Mária
