A Resurrection Song: “Orphan Girl” – Gillian Welch

20 Apr

 

 

I am an orphan on God’s highway
But I’ll share my troubles if you go my way

I have no mother, no father
No sister, no brother
I am an orphan girl

I have had friendships pure and golden
The ties of kinship have not known them

I know no mother, no father
No sister, no brother
I am an orphan girl

But when He calls me I will be able
To meet my family at God’s table

I’ll meet my mother, my father
My brother, oh my little, oh my big brother
No more an orphan girl

Blessed Savior make me willing
Walk beside me until I’m with them

Be my mother, my father
My sister, my brother
I am an orphan girl
I am an orphan girl

 

Christos Aneste
