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

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The dazzling light the homely charm
The friends all gathered near
Familiar faces all well loved
All are welcome here

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Mersey ferries carry Souls
Across the waves of time
The skies of Anfield fused with songs
‘Midst banners held up high

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 From Scotland road to Paradise
From Dingle to the Pier
From Kirkby to the streets of hope
From Bootle Strand they’re here

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 From Birkenhead and Wallasey
From Huyton and from Speke
They walk on through the storms of life
And then at Anfield meet

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 They come together in the name
Of their beloved football team
To talk of days of titles won
Of when their boys were kings

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The dreams that saw the light of day
From Stubbins to Dalglish
From Billy Liddell’s tireless heart
To St. Michael’s flying feet

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The curtains rose on each campaign
The deeds stitched on each flag
The stories told of every quest
Of fiercely conquered land

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 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

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 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.
