The Gospel of Liverpool

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
They walk on through the storms of life
And then at Anfield meet
They come together in the name
Of their beloved football team
To talk of days of titles won
Of when their 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 Steven Gerrard’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 sets sail to flee
So bide the time and don’t give up
The day will dawn once more
A man will come to Liverpool
For such a man he came before.
