There's more that rises in the morning Than the sun
And more that shines in the night Than just the moon
It's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger Than this room

And there's a loyalty that's deeper Than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance I owe only to the Giver Of all good things 
So if I stand let me stand on the promise That you will pull me through And if I can't, let me fall on the grace That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

There's more that dances on the prairies Than the wind
More that pulses in the ocean Than the tide
There's a love that is fiercer Than the love between friends
More gentle than a mother's
When her baby's at her side

And there's a loyalty that's deeper Than mere sentiments And a music higher than the songs That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance I owe only to the Giver Of all good things 
So if I stand let me stand on the promise That you will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

And if I stand let me stand on the promise That you will pull me through And if I can't let me fall on the grace That first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

And if I weep let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home
