AT PLAY IN THE FIELDS OF THE LORD
song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

when I'm walking in the dark
looking for the early moon
morning is around the bend
whistling a happy tune

I'm competing with the birds
signalling the rise of sun
they sing of the promised joy
that God gives to everyone

anything can be today
anything could come our way
maybe hope and maybe love
sky is turning blue above

back at home the fire burns
safe and warm the babies sleep
they'll greet me when I return
as ye sow so shall ye reap

good day
good night
make a ploughshare of the sword
good night
good day
at play
in the fields of the Lord

when tomorrow comes at last
I shall be one with the sun
when the night has come to pass
we shall gather everyone

we shall sit and laugh out loud
at the table we shall eat
food we grew with our own hands
bread we baked from our own wheat

pour the coffee with the cream
raise a toast with every glass
yesterday is but a dream
that we woke up from the past

and we
are at play
in the fields
of the Lord

we have
come to be
in a paradise
may it last

may we
never be afraid
all praise to the Lord
who has saved.....
