Homeward Bound – Bryn Terfel with the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square


Bryn Terfel with the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square

Words and music by Marta Keen

Arrangement by Mack Wilberg

When the moon has gone to bed,
When the sparrows stop their singing
And the sky is clear and red,
When the summer’s ceased its gleaming
When the corn is past its prime,
When adventure’s lost its meaning –
I’ll be homeward bound in time

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I’ll return to you somehow

If you find it’s me you’re missing
If you’re hoping I’ll return,
To your thoughts I’ll soon be listening,
And in the road I’ll stop and turn
Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end
And the path I’ll be retracing
When I’m homeward bound again

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I’ll return to you somehow

Bind me not to the pasture
Chain me not to the plow
Set me free to find my calling
And I’ll return to you somehow
