For the Mullins Family…


“Your eyes see the shining city
Your love heels the poisoned mind
When the journey ends
There’s a new beginning
When the risen man
Heals the weight of time
I can feel it over the line
I see the other country
I see the other side

Do not be afraid of this earthly city
Do not be afraid when the pharaohs nigh

Draw near the lambs awaiting
Where the river runs thru the sky’s align
From that painting of a ship
We have all been chosen
To the painters creation
In his dream design
I can feel it over the line

I see the other country
I see the other side
Do not be afraid of this earthly city
Do not be afraid when the pharaohs nigh
When I was a child
I walked like a child
But now I’m a soldier
Like the Bride and Groom I will be married
I see the other country
I see the other side
Do not be afraid of this earthly city
Do not be afraid when the pharaohs nigh

Even though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death
Even though I sink through the ocean
You will rescue me
I am standing in the fire
but I can hear the choir singing
I was a blind man stumbling
But now I see
I was blind, blind blind
But now I see
I was blind, blind blind
But now I see”
