"I'll Find My Way Home"


"Seek and ye shall find ... " Posted by Picasa

Here I am sitting at my computer listening to a compilation album from Vangelis and exulting once more in a track ("I'll find my way home") from "The Friends of Mr. Cairo," an album Vangelis co-produced with Jon from those old (now) rockers from "Yes." It struck me once again just how Orthodox the lyrics are. Let's check them out ...

"You ask me where to begin
Am I so lost in my sin
You ask me where did I fall
I'll say I can't tell you when
But if my spirit is lost
How will I find what is near
Don't question I'm not alone
Somehow I'll find my way home

My sun shall rise in the east
So shall my heart be at peace
And if you're asking me when
I'll say it starts at the end
You know your will to be free
Is matched with love secretly
And talk will alter your prayer
Somehow you'll find you are there.

Your friend is close by your side
And speaks in far ancient tongue
A seasons wish will come true
All seasons begin with you
One world we all come from
One world we melt into one

Just hold my hand and we're there
Somehow we're going somewhere
Somehow we're going somewhere

[interlude]

You ask me where to begin
Am I so lost in my sin
You ask me where did I fall
I'll say I can't tell you when
But if my spirit is strong
I know it can't be long
No questions i'm not alone
Somehow I'll find my way home
Somehow I'll find my way home
Somehow I'll find my way home
Somehow I'll find my way home"

Do you hear what I hear?

Everything is in there .... grace, an Orthodox understanding of sin, the companionship of Christ, the presence of brothers and sisters on the journey (the Church) and the goal / home which is union with God.

Perhaps we should listen more to what is being said in the culture; the heartfelt cry of those who, with us, are seeking. May we all find our way home. Amen.

As an Eastern Orthodox, you might be interested in the latest post at All Too Common.

The Common Anglican asks about Indulgences and Purgatory.
