Lyrics IN MY OWN LIFETIME
I WANT TO SEE
THE FIGHTING CEASE.
IN MY OWN LIFETIME
I WANT TO SEE
MY SONS ENJOY
THE FRUITS OF PEACE.
WHILE I'M STILL HERE
I WANT TO KNOW
BEYOND A DOUBT
THAT NO ONE
CAN LOCK US IN
OR LOCK US OUT.
WE HAVE CLIMBED
HIGHER,
MUCH HIGHER
THAN I THOUGHT
WE'D CLIMB.
IT'S A LONG JOURNEY
AND EVEN THOUGH
THE END'S IN SIGHT
THERE'S NOT MUCH TIME.
I WANT TO KNOW
WE HAVEN'T BUILT
ON SAND
IN MY OWN LIFETIME.

IN MY OWN LIFETIME,
I WANT TO SEE
OUR EFFORTS BLESSED.
IN MY OWN LIFETIME
I WANT TO SEE
THE WALLS COME DOWN
AND THEN I'LL REST.
THIS MOSES
WANTS TO SEE
THE PROMISED LAND
IN MY OWN LIFETIME.
