Artist/Band: Newsboys
Lyrics for Song: The Orphan
Lyrics for Album: Devotion [2004]



maybe I push when I'm meant to be still

maybe I take it all to personal

Jesus, how to reconcile

the joyful noise

the ancient land

the tug from some invisible hand

the dying mother weaving bulrushes

along the Nile



Chorus

float her basket over the sea

here on a barren shore

we'll be waiting for

a tailwind to carry her (an) orphan's cry

don't you worry, child

I wrote a lullaby



I try to settle, but I just pass through

a rain dog, gypsy

a wandering Jew

all those homes were not ours

then I slept one night

in Abraham's field

and dreamt there was no moon

the night he died

counting stars

Selah



- Chorus -



Bridge

building you a home

building you a home

building you a home

we're building you a home

Selah



- Chorus -



float her basket over the sea

here on a barren shore

we'll be waiting for

a tailwind to bring us your sweet cry

don't you worry, child

I'm gonna sing you a lullaby
