Empty promises that were etched in stone
Scattered by the wind to places I have known
All the burning lamps by the window pane
Lit for their return, but they never came
Lose myself in deep regret, still I hear a voice that I can't forget

It says we will run where roses grow, our feet unbound at last
Laugh as morning dawns; the night forever passed
See the face of glory, feel the river flow
Hear the voice of god and run where roses grow

Fading hope is gathered, as the sky grows dim
But somewhere it's raining, but it's drought, drought within
Out across the desert, was it fate or was it chance?
I saw clouds approaching where I took my stance

It says we will run where roses grow, our feet unbound at last
Laugh as morning dawns; the night forever passed
See the face of glory, feel the river flow
Hear the voice of god and run where roses grow
Hear the thunder rolling, can you hear the horn?
I'm climbing Jacob's ladder up, up, up through the storm

Stand with me at the mercy seat, with mounds, mounds of ashes
spread about my feet
You know who I am, all I think I know
See it in the in the marrow, buried deep in the bone
How is there no anger in the words I hear
only love and mercy erasing every fear?

They say we will run where roses grow, our feet unbound at last,
Laugh as morning dawns; the night forever passed,
I see the face of glory, feel the river flow,
Hear the voice of god and run where roses grow,
Hear the thunder rolling, can you hear the horn?
I'm climbing Jacob's ladder up, up, up through the storm
