A Liverpool Gospel

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A murmur gathers on the breeze
A voice behind the clouds
A glimpse I see of heaven’s grace
For heaven surely I am bound
The dazzling light the homely charm
The friends all gathered near
Familiar faces all well loved
All are welcome here

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Mersey ferries carry Souls
Across the waves of time
The skies of Anfield fused with songs
‘Midst banners held up high
From Scotland road to Paradise
From Dingle to the Pier
From Kirkby to the streets of hope
From Bootle Strand they’re here

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 From Birkenhead and Wallasey
From Huyton and from Speke
The lads from London make their way
And then at Anfield meet
We come together in the name
Of our beloved football team
To talk of days of titles won
Of when our boys were kings

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The dreams that saw the light of day
From Stubbins to Dalglish
From Billy Liddell’s tireless heart
To Stevie’s flying feet
The curtains rose on each campaign
The deeds stitched on each flag
The stories told of every quest
Of fiercely conquered land

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now through the storms that wildly blow
And cast all dreams to sea
The laughter struggles to survive
And hope seems set to flee
But bide the time and don’t give up
The day will dawn once more
The words will carry on the wind
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Miracle of Istanbul
The day that came to be
The Reds are Kings of Europe Lads
Now that’s a sight to see
For football like the lives we live
In wild seas can be thrown
Remember when the night is long
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”.
