Rich Mullins – Calling Out Your Name lyrics

Well the moon moved past Nebraska and
Spilled laughter on them cold Dakota Hills
And angels danced on Jacob's stairs
There is this silence in the Badlands
An over Kansas the whole universe was stilled
By the whisper of a prayer
And the single hawk bursts into flight
And in the east the whole horizon is in flames
I feel the thunder in the sky
I see the sky about to rain
And I hear the prairies calling out Your name
I can feel the earth trmbl ebeneath
The rumbling of the buffalo hooves
And the fury in the pheasant's wings
It tell sme the Lord is in His temple and there is
Still faith that can make the mountains move
And a love that can make the heavens ring
Where the sacred rivers meet beneath
The shadow of the Keeper of the plains
Repeat chorus
>From the place where morning gathers
You can look sometimes
Forever 'til you see
What time may never know
How the Lod tits corners this old world
And shakes us forward - shakes us free
To run wild with the hope
The hope that this thirst will not last long
That it will soon drown
In the song not sung in vain
Repeat chorus
I know this thirst will not last long, that it will
Soon drown in the song not sung in vain
I feel the thunder in the sky
I see the sky about to rain
And with the prairies I am calling out Your name
