Lyrics
Spinning endlessly in this madman' symphopny
my care is, but, to trust the Beloved
His wish will care for me
Over hill and dale, filling up my pail
On and on I follow His footsteps
at ease upon His trail
In my lives I've looked here
In my lives I've looked there
As if loving and laughter were hidden somewhere
Now I know that it's bigger than that
in this search where your heart is the map
What you do in the end's all the same
just as long as you're keeping His name

First Chorus
Meher Baba, Lord of lords
He the Keeper of living's lost chord
He beginning, He is end
He, the junction between God and man

I am not aware quite enough to see
how the lines you trace for our lives
always gives us what we need
Everyday I pray, "Lord, please help me be
all that I can be in your eyes, let me sail upon your sea"
There are so many things that I may or not choose
I could wish to have wings, but then I'd be the fool
to be saddled with wings of a bird
when my heart's only wish to be heard
in a journey that only will be
consummated where shore meets the sea

2nd Chorus
Meher Baba, Lord of lords
He the keeper of living's lost chord
He beginning, He is end
He, the junction between God and man
Out of prison, I'm released
I surrender my life at His feet
Hear the Master, leave your gold
with it's glitter you're lost and you're sold
Pray with laughter, sing out loud
The Beloved is showing me how
Meher Baba, Lord of lords,
He the keeper of living's lost chord
He beginning, He is end
He the junction between God and man
