Lord of the Grey 

Tom Sheibley

Nick Cardilino

 
In searching for the road to you, I try to see the signs
Careful calculations and sharp dividing lines
Recipes and rulebooks to keep me safe and pure
But the times I find I need you most are the times Iím most unsure
 
And there you are, turning all the tables
There you are, healing on the seventh day
Following my lawful thoughts wonít lead me all the way
As I move beyond the black and the white, can you be the Lord of the Grey?
 
Voices all around me volunteer to help me see
To show me where itís written, how itís done and how to be
But circumstance and history reveal to me your grace
And beg of me compassion and your Spiritís higher ways
 
And there you are, reaching for the outcast.
There you are, casting stones away.
Listening to my head I canít hear all you have to say
As I move beyond the black and the white, can you be the Lord of the Grey?
 
When I was a child I only thought in childish ways
But letters carved in stone are not the image of your face.
Help me walk this balance as I seek to know your will.
A greater law of love is what you came here to fulfill.
