An Open, Homeward Gate

from by John King

lyrics

When all I’ve planted withers away
And the colors of my love have bled to gray
As the river finally dries, leaving only questions why
Close my eyes
And see
What I hope to be
An open, homeward gate

When my father hides his face
When the world becomes the darkest lonely place
As the fire slowly dies with the chill of endless night
Close my eyes
And see
What I hope to be
An open, homeward gate

When my lungs want no more breath
When my body falls with every weakened step
As my spirit dies with a silent cry
Lift my eyes
And see
A savior breach
My broken open gate
