lyrics

The last stone up is first to fall when I’m building Canaan’s wall.
I try to run before I crawl in the shadow of Canaan’s wall.
I hold tight what you set free. This world will be the end of me.
Is there more than what I see? But Canaan’s always calling me.

If I try to keep it close, I may lose what I love most…

You are my Canaan, you are my promised land.
You are the earth beneath my feet, you are the answer in my hand.
But my heart is holding fast, afraid to fall, like a stone in Canaan’s wall.

Flame to ember, ash to dust, fall to winter fades.
To your Canaan, I entrust my hope for better days.

If I try to keep it close, I may lose what I love most…

You are my Canaan, you are my promised land.
You are the earth beneath my feet, you are the answer in my hand.
But my heart is holding fast, afraid to fall, like a stone in Canaan’s wall.

Born to gather stones to build this fortress,
‘Round my heart it goes in shade of darkness,
Though I hear you calling, is Canaan calling?

You are my Canaan, you are my promised land.
You are the earth beneath my feet, you are the answer in my hand.
But my heart is holding fast, afraid to fall, like a stone in Canaan’s wall.
