Andrew Peterson – The Far Country lyrics

Father Abraham
Do you remember when
You were called to a land
And didn't know the way

'Cause we are wandering
In a foreign land
We are children of the
Promise of the faith

And I long to find it
Can you feel it, too?
That the sun that's shining
Is a shadow of the truth

This is a far country, a far country
Not my home

In the dark of the night
I can feel the shadows all around me
Cold shadows in the corners of my heart

But the heart of the fight
Is not in the flesh but in the spirit
And the spirit's got me shaking in the dark

And I long to go there
I can feel the truth
I can hear the promise
Of the angels of the moon

This is a far country, a far country
Not my home

I can see in the strip malls and the phone calls
The flaming swords of Eden
In the fast cash and the news flash
And the horn blast of war
In the sin-fraught cities of the dying and the dead
Like steel-wrought graveyards where the wicked never rest
To the high and lonely mountain in the groaning wilderness
We ache for what is lost
As we wait for the holy God
Of Father Abraham

I was made to go there
Out of this far country
To my home, to my home

    Just like abram, whose name was changed eventually to abraham, focusing on his fatherhood unto many nations, we, too, who acknowledge jesus as god's son, and who are seeking to follow him as our main purpose of life, are on a sojourn in a foreign land. A land that is not our home. But which god promises a home unto to all who wander in it while hearing his volce.
