Hymn #35 Songtext

Hymn #35 Songtext

Here I've come to know the wishlist of my father
I have come to know the shipwrecks where he wished
I have come to wish aloud among the overdressed crowd
Come to witness now the sinking of the ship
Throwing pennies from the seatop next to it

And I've come to roam the forest past the village
With a dozen lazy horses and my cart
I've come here to get high, to do more than just get by
I have come to test the timber of my heart
Oh I've come to test the timber of my heart

And I've come to be untroubled in my seeking
And I've come to see that nothing is for naught
I've come to reach out blind, to reach forward and behind
For the more I seek the more I'm saught
Yeah, the more I seek the more I'm saught


And I've come to meet the sherrif and his posse
To offer him the broad side of my jaw
I've come here to get broke, and then maybe bum a smoke
We'll go drinkin two towns over afterall
Oh We'll go drinkin two twons over after all

And I've come to meet the legendary takers
I've only come to ask them for a lot
And they say I come with less than I should rightfully posess
I say the more I buy the more I'm bought
And the more I'm bought the less I cost

And I've come to take their servants and their surplus
And I've come to take their raincoats and their speed
And I've come to get my fill, to ransack and spill
I have come to take the harvest for the seed
I have come to take the harvest for the seed

And I've come to know the manger that she's sleeping
I've come to be the stranger that you keep
I have come from down the road, and my footsteps never slowed
Before we met I knew we'd meet (x2)

And I've come here to ignore your cries and heartaches
I've come here to closely listen to your sing
I've come here to insist that i leave here with a kiss
And i've come here to say exactly what i mean
I mean so many things


And you've come to know me stubborn as a butcher
And you've come to know me thankless as a guest
But will you recognize my face when god's aweful grace
Strips me of my jacket and my vest
And reveals the treasure of my chest
