Going Home

Saturday, March 6, 2010 \AM\.\Sat\.

Something for the weekend.  The haunting lyrics of Going Home movingly sung by Mary Fahl, the introduction to the movie Gods and Generals.

They say there’s a place , where dreams have all gone
They never said where, but I think I know
Its miles through the night just over the dawn
On the road that will take me home

I know in my bones, I’ve been here before
The ground feels the same, though the land’s been torn
I’ve a long way to go, the stars tell me so
On this road that will take me home.

Love waits for me round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
and all our troubles will be gone
And I know what I’ve lost, and all that I won
when the road finally takes me home

And when I pass by , don’t lead me astray
Don’t try and stop me , don’t stand in my way
I’m bound for the hills where cool waters flow
on this road that will take me home

Love waits for me round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
and all our troubles will be gone
And we’ll know what we’ve lost and all that we’ve won
when the road finally takes me home.

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

My Thoughts on the Guitar Mass

I have still failed to find anything in the documents of the Second Vatican Council where it said to replace the organ with the guitar.
