Through All The Years

all your waiting
all your working
all your secrets
all your pain

all your patience
all your anger
all your courage
all your shame

through all the years

every hallway
every story
every hammer
every nail

every sunday
every summer
every candle
every name

through all the years

all your hurting
all your hoping
all the midnights
all the rain

in your vision
in your memory
in your children
in your veins

over the distance
over the waters
through the valley
through the grave

there is a homeland
there is a shepherd
he will carry us
all the way

through all the years
