One Generation

ya mighta heard there was salvation

at an altar in a glen

ya mighta gone there as a nation

tryin' t' put off yer sin

 

but the priest that was waitin' jus' offered ya death

put his cold bony hand on yer heart

an' jus' fer a minute as ya struggled fer breath

ya saw places, an' faces, an' a promise t' do yer part

 

yer God 's jus' a God o' one generation

He don't give a damn where ya been

'cause the children that chose ya without hesitation

once believed ya would let them begin

 

an' all o' the little ones that ya jus' offered death

only came t' lead ya back t' the shore

an' jus' fer a minute as they struggled fer breath

they saw places, an' faces,

an' wept 'cause ya coulda been more

 

ya mighta heard there was salvation

at an altar in the glen

but yer God's jus' a God o' one generation

it's yer children who lead ya back in
