Rich Mullins – I'll Carry On lyrics
"Momma I've got two strong hands.
And they're fine as far as hands go
I can shoulder the future I can face the wind
For the dream that I must follow
It's a dream that can kill with it's beauty
It's a hurt that can heal with it's pain
And with all of these miles that lie before me
I may never get home again
But I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always, and I promise you this
I'll carry on ~ I'll carry on
I kissed the earth on my daddy's grave
Said goodbye to my brave young companions
But when they hoist that sail I know my heart will break
As bright and as fine as the morning
I don't know where this road will take me
But they say there's a place there for a man
And I'm only afraid that my dreams may betray me
And I'll never get home again
But I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
And I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
I'll carry on ~ I'll carry on
And oh, I can shoulder the future I can brave the wind
Oh we go on ~ we go on but we never get home again
So I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
I'll carry on ~ I'll carry on
And I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
I'll carry on (I'll carry on)
I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this (promise you this)
I'll carry on (I'll carry on)
I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
I'll carry on
And I'll carry the songs (carry the songs)
And I'll carry the scars (carry the scars)
And I'll pray for you always, and I promise you this
I'll carry on
And I'll carry the songs (carry the songs)
And I'll carry the scars (carry the scars)
And I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
I'll carry on ~ I'll carry on"
