WHERE HEALING WATERS FLOW

Home > Composers > MATTHEW EMERY > WHERE HEALING WATERS FLOW

Serene choral music, full of prayerful pleading – to the lyrics of Paul Laurence Dunbar (b. 1872) – who gave the world beautiful and meaningful poetry. He was the first African American to achieve acclaim for his writing, – he was the son of slaves’.

LYRICS

O Lord, the hard-won miles have 
worn my stumbling feet
O soothe me with Thy smiles,
and make my life complete.

O Lord, the thorns were thick and keen
Where’re I trembling trod
The way was long between
my wounded feet and God.

O Lord, where healing waters flow
do Thou my footsteps lead
My heart is aching, aching so
Thy gracious balm I need – O Lord

poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)
