lifeblood: songs: north star


when i cross over, i'm gonna follow the deer trails
so my soul-it won't get lost
creek bed to the river, where i drink my water
rest for my journey on the banks of the etowah

everyone before me, those that come after
may we all find our way through
i am part of my maker's story
and i'm washed in the spirit of the multitude

oh my soul, i'm gonna wait for nightfall
find the north star to lead me on
'cause it's brought so many to freedom
they were more deserving, but still i know

everyone before me, those that come after
we will all find our way through
i am part of my maker's story
and i'm washed in the spirit of the multitude

now if i fly, i'm gonna heed the bird songs
so my wings they know their place
in the great migration to the new horizon
where our better angels and justice reigns

everyone before me, those that come after
may we all help each other through
to a land that knows no suffering
without the mercy and the healing balm
everyone before me, those that come after
may we all find our way home
