Foxes Have Holes

Foxes have holes and birds have nests,

But I have nowhere to lay my head.

Follow me and leave your loves behind,

And let the dead bury their own dead.

 

Mother may call and beg of you,

Father may scoff and turn his back.

But don’t you fear, no, don’t you weep,   

For I will give you all you lack.

 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long.

Hear what I say: to me you belong. 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long.

Hear what I say: to me you belong.

 

Let me be clear and not confuse:

It’s everything that I demand.

I sought you out, called you by name,              

Now heed my call with plow in hand.

 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long

Hear what I say: to me you belong. 

For there comes a day, my kingdom, it will come

No more delay: your journey will be done.

 

‘Cause I’m on a way narrow, steep and long

Hear what I say: to me you belong. 

For there comes a day, my kingdom, it will come

No more delay: your journey will be done.
