SONG LYRICS

Oh son of man, your word I hunger,
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
Oh son of man, your word I hunger
Steer away, to Zion’s bay
Across the wine dark ocean.

Your words oh Lord, our minds enlighten,
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
On Israel’s shores, black clouds did torment,
Steer away, to Zion’s bay,
Across the wine dark ocean.

John Baptist was his family kinsman,
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
Salome’s request, cruel retribution,
Steer away, to Zion’s bay,
Across the wine dark ocean.
Bridge:
I thought to seek the face of God;
Climbed Magdalene’s high steeple,
Deep bells thundered sweet applaud
But he dwelt among the people.

Galilee, a troubled ocean,
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
On Yahweh’s thoughts, his mind emboldened
Steer away, to Zion’s bay,
Across the wine dark ocean.

For three long years, he taught Israel
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
The hanged him on a willow tree,
Steer away, to Zion’s bay,
Across the wine dark ocean.

On Christmas day, the world recalls him,
Steer away, you rolling breakers,
It was for us, he crossed the Jordan
Steer away, to Zion’s bay,
Across the wine dark ocean.
