Lyrics

Walking by the seashore, and noticing the sand,
I thought of ancient promises, and Father Abraham,
Father of the faithful and grandfather to the Jew
Prophet to the Hebrews, and King to me and you.

Abraham, Abraham, lead me along; set me a pathway and sing me a song.
Teach me the ways of the faithful and true;
Guide me to heaven to live there, with you.

Patriarchs and Prophets see the wonders deep in man.
They're sent to help us conquer pain, and do the good we can.
Now every child of Abraham will know some tears and scars,
But after cleansing out the dross, they lead us to the stars.

Abraham, Abraham, lead me along; set me a pathway and sing me a song.
Teach me the ways of the faithful and true;
Guide me to heaven to live there, with you.

In the clarity of nightfall, when I see what Abram saw,
I marvel at the universe, and beauties of the stars.
I see an hear a symphony of never-ending lights,
And sense the need within my soul, to reach those same far heights.

Abraham, Abraham, lead me along; set me a pathway and sing me a song.
Teach me the ways of the faithful and true;
Guide me to heaven to live there, with you.
