Click to hear our rendition of this song  For the video of this song on Youtube: CA Route 128

In our recording above, Mark is the lead vocalist, also accompanying us with the guitar. Joshua is playing the drum, and Joshua and I are also singing with Mark. The words are rather tricky to sing. But this recording came out pretty well!

Driving Route 128 to Ft. Bragg, California

1. Come share with us / the beautiful life / received in Christ,

Come share with us / the beautiful life / received in Christ.

There are winding curves / that take some nerve / to negotiate.

There are winding curves / where you can swerve / on Route 128.

2. The golden hills / embrace the thrills / of amazing grace.

The heavens above / declare God’s love / with sweetest phrase.

3. Cascading vines / in Eucharist lines / commune the earth,

Clustering flood, / life-giving blood / of Christ’s new birth.

1. The redwoods stand / on gospel land / green shouts of praise.

Aged awesome halls / with hallowed walls / their Cathedrals raise.

2. The shade, the dream / the gurgling stream, / and refreshing scents.

A graceful deer / sees us near / and clears a fence.

2. Then the ocean breeze / sweeps through the trees / opening the sky.

The river winds / and searching finds / the thirsty tide.

3. The lumbering moor / wild flower shore / of the turquoise sea.

Green rolling hills / and seagull shrills / of eternity.

1. Migrating whales / with powerful tails / spout exultantly.

The pounding surf / wakes up the earth / sparkling and free.

1. Resounding sound / makes the word abound / so naturally. ( repeat)

1. Come share with us / the beautiful life / received in Christ,

Come share with us / the beautiful life / received in Christ.

1,2,and 3, stand for different parts of the melody. The slashes represent spacing of the poetry here.

For Trinity Lutheran Church, Ft. Bragg, California
