lyrics

As the sun goes down
I’m reminded that we’re not alone
Though sometimes it’s hard not to feel alone
Once the weeds have grown

Deep in the ground
We finally dug to see what we exposed
Leaving ourselves equally exposed
That’s how digging goes

Chorus:
Brother on my left, sister on my right
We were strangers before, but not tonight
Almighty show us now how to make it right
And make it to the morning light

Let’s leave our plans
No longer rest our lives on where we’re from
But together break into a run
Refuse to bow before the gun

Explore the land
Of milk and honey and the Maker’s free grace
Where all of our mistakes have been erased
Yeah, I believe in such a place

Chorus

Once the sun goes down
And the waves are crashing loud on the shore
Somehow it’s easy then to see that there’s more
Than we’ve been reaching for

Wrapped in that sound
Among the darkness and the wind’s heavy chill
Resting on the sand, quiet and still
It’s time to stand and climb the hill
