Lantern In The Snow

Recorded by Randy Stonehill for his album Wonderama

© 1992 Words and Music by Randy Stonehill and Terry Taylor

Distant voices draw you on
To the glow of the evensong
Call you back where you belong
A prayer for you, a gift for you

Leave your burdens and your cares
By the fire there's an empty chair
And old friends are waiting there
Just for you, a gift for you

Tonight, dark night
Without a star to guide you
Sweet child, lost child come home
We will watch, we will pray
Love will light your way
Gently like a lantern in the snow

A dreamer's song whispered in your ear
And you searched through the restless years
For the prize that was always here
Just for you, a gift for you
Through the wintery veil you cried
Let your memory be your guide
To the peace and the warmth inside
Just for you, a gift for you


(Interlude - The Prodigal's Journey)
