Lyrics
The Joy of Grace (no. 11)
5th Movement, Hungry for Heaven

Rolling down a highway slipstream
You're missing signs, you don't look both ways
Just passing time in your dream machine
On a journey, out of phase

In the cradle of a grand creation
Under the moon and stars above
You begin to read the cracks and the ripples
You begin to feel a season of love

You are a member of His body
You are reflected in His face
You are a laborer for justice 
You are infected with His grace

You are cooled in the shade of a holy tree
Watered from the well of eternity
Nourished by the Word, dancing joyously

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace

Write your songs in the desert
Dream your visions in streams of unrest
Run the viridian shoreline
Harvest the teeming tempest forest

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace

Praise the God of all souls
Praise the Lord of the way
Praise the Healer of woes
Praise our Hope for each day

Hear the unborn babies wailing
Fear our lost humanity
Hear the rattle of broken vows
Fear the shadows of vanity

What will bring us through?
It is grace!
Know the joy of grace!
What will bring us through?
It is grace!
Know the joy of grace!

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace
