Life on Capitol Hill

Life on Capitol Hill
Posted By: Richard Beattie

We are climbing out

we are heading through the doors

We are seeking out

we are getting to the causes

we are forging towards the light

and what we are living for

Living for today

with eyes toward tomorrow

looking back at where you’ve brought us from

Following the way

picking up our sorrows

leaving out the roads we’re past, heading for the kingdom.

We are on this pilgrimage

we are on this Ancient Path

we are living out this life

we are on this narrow road

we are running towards the bridge

selling everything we have

words cut like a knife

we are on the open road

Living for today

with eyes toward tomorrow

looking back at where you’ve brought us from

Following the way

picking up our sorrows

leaving out the past, heading for the kingdom.

On earth as it is

rebirth as it is

un-earthed as it is

in heaven.

We are coming out

from rumors of war

we are coming out of doubt

to what we were made for!

We are coming from a drought

where the dry bones have endured

We are giving a shout out

to the hope in which we’re sure

Living for today

with eyes toward tomorrow

looking back at where you’ve brought us from

Following the way

picking up our sorrows

leaving out the past, heading for the kingdom.
