You saw me at the gate of the world
You washed my feet
I knew you at the gate of the world
Gave you something to eat
The gentle waves washed over us
Now here we are
Leaning on our shepherd's staff
And following a star
We would have missed us if we hadn't come this far
I'll love you at the gate of the world
God healed me at the gate of the world
Now I see again
You were lonely at the gate of the world
I am your friend
The pulse of this great dying earth
Is in our ears
And the wrong we've done
The wars we've fought
Bring on the tears
But we'll hold fast the faith and hope
That brought us here
Left us at the gate of the world
The gentle waves washed over us
Now here we are
Leaning on our shepherd's staff
And following a star
We would have missed us if we hadn't come this far
I'll love you at the gate of the world
I dreamt of nations at the gate of the world
Laying down their guns
And peace fell at the gate of the world
On everyone
And high upon a thousand hills
The angels sang
And understanding filled the heart of every man
They knew that they would never pass this way again
We're passing through the gate of the world
