Emmylou Harris lyrics : "The Maker"

Oh, oh deep water, black and cold like the night
I stand with arms wide open
I've run a twisted line

I'm a stranger in the eyes of the Maker
I could not see for the fog in my eyes
I could not feel for the fear in my life


From across the great divide, In the distance I saw a light
Of Jean Baptiste's he's walking to me with the Maker

My body my body is bent and broken by long and dangerous sleep
I can't work the fields of Abraham and turn my head away
I'm not a stranger in the hands of the Maker


Brother John, have you seen the homeless daughters
Standing there with broken wings

I have seen the flaming swords
There over east of eden
Burning in the eyes of the Maker

Burning in the eyes of the Maker
Burning in the eyes of the Maker


Oh, river rise from your sleep
Oh, river rise from your sleep
Oh, river rise from your sleep
