Raise High Your Voices
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

Raise high your voices, raise ‘em high
There’s a train in the station
And it’s time to say goodbye.
Raise high your voices, raise ‘em high
My soul is on the mountain and it’s
Ready to fly.

I’ll miss these fields of cotton
I’ll miss this shanty town
But we’ll make a place for you
When your turn comes around
I’ll miss the scent of sugarcane,
Sweet jasmine and lilac.
But we’re off to new adventures
And there is no turning back.

Once I was a simple man,
I did my daily best,
But something grew inside of me
A-pounding in my breast.
And now I’m even simpler,
I put my trust in God,
I do not know just where to go
But step where he has trod.

When I could go no further,
A broken, shattered man
Somehow the good Lord found me
And made me whole again
And if the train won’t leave the station
We’ll lift our voice and sing
And the cars will glide down the rails
Propelled by angels’ wings.
