  • "JACOB AND ISRAEL"  1993
  • (Guy Thomas)   There's a story in the bible about Jacob. Through his struggles he's transformed into Israel.                             
  • Sing from the heart children
  • Sing for the joy of life
  • From every hill and dale
  • Jacob is Israel
  • Now Jacob is Israel
  •  
  • He can feel the wind blowin'
  • Really feel the wind blow
  • When you ask him where he's goin'
  • He'll smile and say "I don't know"
  • He can feel the sun shining
  • Really feel the sun shine
  • And he flows with the connection
  • Between his soul and his mind
  •  
  • But he's done his time in the shadows
  • Spent some time in the dark
  • And he's walked alone into battle
  • With nothing but his heart
  • And he can tell you the tale
  • Of Jacob and Israel
  •  
  • The moment came in his lifetime
  • When he drew his sword from its sheath
  • There was nothing left but fighting
  • For what it was that he believed in
  • Last night I tried hard to focus
  • Do some work and then go to bed
  • But I wound up in front of the TV
  • Remote in hand, instead
  •  
  • Well I know that there are some demons
  • Tuggin' at my sleeve
  • But they're nothin' but little demons
  • Tryin' to have their way with me
  • Lord I'm down on my knees, help me
  •  
  • Sing from the heart children
  • Sing for the joy of life
  • From every hill and dale
  • Jacob is Israel, now Jacob is Israel
