Paulus, Stephen: The Road Home

The Road Home (2002)

Tell me where is the road
I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost,
So long ago?
All these years I have wandered,
Oh when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?

After wind, after rain,
When the dark is done,
As I wake from a dream
In the gold of day,
Through the air there’s a calling
From far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.

Rise up, follow me,
Come away is the call,
With love in your heart
As the only song;
There is no such beauty as where you belong,
Rise up, follow me,
I will lead you home.

Words: Michael Dennis Browne (b. 1940)
Music: Stephen Paulus (b. 1949)
