On the Deck of a Spanish Sailing Ship, 1492 Lyrics


by Company. From Songs For A New World.


MAN 1:
Lord, we take this journey
To find a promised land
Lord, we take this journey
To find a promised land
And we believe in your power
We believe in your power
We believe in your power
But the end is so close
So close at hand

Lord, these men are hungry
There just hasn't been enough
And the journey's been so rough
And, Lord, these men are hurting
They implore me to go back
As the planks beneath them crack

And I know it's my responsibility
But I'm starving too
And I hurt, I do
And I'm lost
I believe in my responsibility
But I need to see
If the fruits will be worth the cost

So I'm begging you, Lord
You gotta stop, take a look
At your children who believe in this promised land
Have mercy, Lord
Stop their suffering and their woe
Stop, shine your light on these children
Who have faith in your guiding hand
I'm just begging Lord
‘Cause there's no place else to go
I am unworthy, Lord

Lord, this ship is crowded
And the men are tired an worn
But another baby's born
And, Lord, this ship is broken
And the sails are ripped and old
But the winds are rough and cold

And I know

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
It's my responsibility

MAN 1:
When I ride the sea
These men turn to me for a sign

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
I believe in my responsibility

MAN 1:
But I can't be sure
When it's time for your light to shine
So I'm begging you, Lord
To make it

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Stop, Take a look

MAN 1:
At your children
Who believe in this promised land

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Have mercy, Lord

MAN 1:
Give a sign to let us know

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Stop, shine your light

MAN 1:
On these children
Who have faith in your guiding hand
I'm just begging, Lord
‘Cause there's no place else to go

WOMAN 1:
Lord, save this child
I am not strong enough
I am not strong enough
Lord, save my soul
I am unworthy

WOMAN 1 & WOMAN 2:
Lord, take my hand
I am not strong enough
I am not strong enough

WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Lord, take my heart
I am unworthy

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Lord, give me hope
I am not strong enough
I am not strong enough
Lord, give me light
I am unworthy
I am unworthy

Stop, take a look
At the children, at the children
Who believe in this promised land
You gotta have mercy, Lord
Have mercy, Lord
Give us strength so that we can grow

Stop, shine your light
On these children who have faith in divine command

MAN 1:
I'm just begging, Lord
I'm just begging you, Lord
I know I am unworthy
But there's no place else to go

WOMAN 1:
A new world calls across the ocean

MAN 2:
A new world calls across the ocean

WOMAN 2:
A new world

MAN 1, WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2, & MAN 2:
Calls across the sky!
