lyrics

I’ll build you a barn.
I’ll build you a barn big enough.
I’ll build you a barn,
I’ll build you a barn.
I’ll build you a barn big enough
to hold all of us.

The door will swing wide;
swing wide enough for one and all.
The door will swing wide.
The door will swing wide.
And carrying what we can bear
we’ll stand as we are.

Some cradle it close;
sharp as the wood-splitter’s axe.
Some cradle it close.
Some cradle it close.
The heavy head sledgehammer, dull,
some drag it in slow.

I’ll build you a barn.
I’ll build you a barn big enough
to hold all of us;
to hold all of us.
And laden together we’ll stand
the dusk coming on.
