There is a land high on a hill where I am going There is a voice that calls to me The air is sweet, the grasses wave The wind is blowing away up in the farthest field REFRAIN: Oh walk with me and we will see the mystery revealed When one day we went our way up to the farthest field The sun will rise, the sun will set Across the mountains and we will live with beauty there The fragrant flowers the days and hours Will not be counted and peaceful songs will fill the air REFRAIN I know one day I’ll leave my home Here in this valley and climb up to that field so fair And when I’m called and counted in That final tally I know that I will see you there REFRAIN Oh my dear friends I truly love To hear your voices lifted up in radiant song Though through the years we all have made our separate choices We’ve ended here where we belong.

May the life I lead speak for me When I get to the end of my road And I lay down my heavy load May the life I lead speak for me May the songs I sing speak for me May the work I do speak for me May the words I speak speak for me May the path I walk speak for me May the land I tend speak for me
