Faithful Daughters come back home

Faithful Daughters


I’ve set upon the waters

And crossed the open sea,

I’ve had your faithful daughters

come back home to me.


Here, there are towers to climb  

A place to shed your fears,  

only if you’ve taken time

to wipe away your tears.


show your lonely face

look toward the rising sun,

show the human race

that you are not done.


who is the native son

with risen hand held high,

where is the earthly run  

that bids the soul goodbye.   


sheltered by a steaming shroud

from earth’s own griping leer,

raise up to be the cloud

and fill the skies with tear.   


Wash away the beating cloak  

fend off the years of strife,   

take up the mighty yoke  

his load will give you life.
