SEVEN SONGS

Go (Holy Orders)

Some fires don't light, no matter a million match strikes
Some coals won't die, burning hot and red through the night

Do I have what it takes, can I pull it together or will I break?
I don't know, I just don't know, will I stay or will I go?

Lend me their hands Father when I can't understand
Would you save me when I say amen and maybe

Do I have what it takes, can you water a mustard seed of faith?
Will it wilt, or will I grow?  I don't know, I just don't know

He who waits, watching the weather, watching the weather will not sow
She will fear, failing to figure, knowing the path the wind will blow

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
But I will go, I will go, I will go

Do I have what it takes, can you pull me together or will I break?
Will I wait, or will I sow?  Oh, God knows.  Oh God knows.
