We are one, every daughter and son
With our forgotten names
We left home on the open road
To find the holy flames
We are the children of the Son king
Hold onto my hand this mysterious evening
It’ll meet us like a dream



Call all our names and we’ll be found
Walking where we heard the sound, on down
Tomorrow mountain we will climb
Tonight the stars and fire shines
In our eyes
In the woods
We’re alive



Cloud by day, and the fire of night
We will never look back
Young and old with a sojourner's soul
Illuminate the path
Follow where the moon does shine
Through the leaves of trees above
Wild life, holy night
The ocean is singing of
The earth trembles with his love

Call all our names and we’ll be found
Walking where we heard the sound, on down
Tomorrow mountain we will climb
Tonight the stars and fire shines
In our eyes
In the woods

    General CommentBeautiful song--there are the obvious biblical references in there, but it also makes me thinks of parts of Emerson's Nature.

    General CommentIt's about the exodus of the children of Israel from Egypt. The Lord led them with a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night.

    My InterpretationRev 7:3-4 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
    Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
