    EDGE OF GLORY
    (Written by Joan Baez, Wally Wilson, Kenny Greenberg & Karen O'Connor)

    My house stands at the edge of glory
    Steady as the seasons change
    Dreams of grace arise before me
    And they call me home again

    I went forth with no protection
    Through a fierce and blinding rain
    Seeking truth but not perfection
    Saw my father's face again

    Father, father can you hear me
    Through this swirl of thoughts unsaid
    All you wanted I did not know
    All you asked I tried to give

    My house stands at the edge of glory
    Steady as the seasons change
    Dreams of grace arise before me
    And they call me home again

    Take this hand that I hold out
    Meant to bridge the years apart
    Come in, come in from the howling wind
    To the clearing of my heart

    Still and lovely came the morning
    Gone was my father's face
    In my house a bright reflection
    New among my dreams of grace

    My house stands at the edge of glory
    Steady as the seasons change
    Dreams of grace arise before me
    And they call me home again
