Immigrants - Summit

Lyrics > Immigrants - Summit

SUMMIT

Oh i’m looking at the sea…wondering about its reach
Endless possibility…yet my life’s in full retreat
Reached up to the heavens and found my solemn path

Oh sweet Johnny will you rise, again
Will you taste the water and the wine
Will you make a sweet young maiden smile…again
You can’t ride in all directions at one time
Read the words and the wisdom you will find

Yes, I’m walking by myself…up the Bellarmine Hill
The horizon lies ahead…yet I’m suddenly chilled
Redemption’s chosen angel wraps me in a shroud

Oh sweet Johnny will you rise, again
Will you taste the water and the wine
Will you make a sweet young maiden smile…again
You can’t ride in all directions at one time
Read the words and the wisdom you will find

Bridge
The just man takes his wisdom not measured by his years
Perfection comes from fullness of a soul
A life of simple virtue embraces human form
It’s easier to promise and hard to fulfill

Well I’m coming home tonight…earlier than I thought
I’m ready for my rest…understanding what was taught
Saved from the deceits, I’m an innocent again

Oh sweet Johnny will you rise, again
Will you taste the water and the wine
Will you make a sweet young maiden smile…again
You can’t ride in all directions at one time
Read the words and the wisdom you will find

Hamden, January-February 2009
