On the Deck of a Spanish Sailing Ship, 1492 Song Lyrics


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!
