Lyrics

Wilderness (Isaiah 43) Eulogy My Dad

Written By: Mehuman Jonson

There's a road that runs through the wilderness
There's a river that runs through the sea
There's a place I hold for memories
In the very heart of me

Wade in the water
Let's wade in the water
Wade in the water
and we will be free

I'm going home to everyone one who shares my name
I'm done chasing fortunes and fleeting fame
I missed so many times, and moments I can't reclaim
Oh, but I'm with you now even in my dreams

All of the weight are gone from my heart
All of the burden lifted from my mind
I've found a place to hold on to your memory
In the very heart of me
