Bruce Springsteen lyrics -- Bruce Springsteen shows -- Bruce Springsteen records

Song title: Heaven's wall


Heaven's wall

There was a woman waiting at the well
Drawing water ‘neath a desert sky of blue
She said he’ll heal the blind, raise the dead
Cure that sickness out of you

Come on men of Gideon
Come all men of Saul
Come all sons of Abraham
Waiting outside heaven’s wall

Raise your hand, raise your hand, raise your hand
Raise your hand, raise your hand, raise your hand
Together we’ll walk into Canaan land
Raise your hand, raise your hand, raise your hand

He saw the watcher at the city gates
Jonah in the belly of the whale
He watched you walk your ragged mile
His mercy did not fail

Raise your hand, raise your hand, raise your hand
….
