Mission Bell

This song is by Three Crosses and appears on the album Three Crosses (1995).

The southern wind was blowing
I heard the mission bell
Frozen in the moment
Time stood still

My soul was like the sunlight
Dancing in the sea
Unsure of where tomorrow leads

I wish that I had listened
All those years ago
I know I can't go back in time
But I'm fortunate to know
The miracles that Christ performed
I've seen his truth unfold
To the toll of his mission bell

The mission bells were ringing in my mind
I know the Lord was calling me but I
Tried to keep my distance but I could not deny
The toll of the mission bell

Shadows in the darkness
Bitter souls who cry
We're living in an age of sin
Where children are left to die
They try to see tomorrow
But these streets tell only lies
As the tears roll down my eyes
I can't help but wonder why

The mission bells were ringing in my mind
I know the Lord was calling me but I
Tried to keep my distance but I could not deny
The toll of the mission bell

Tell me can you hear the mission bell tonight
Somewhere in the distance God is calling you
I pray that you'd learn from my mistake
My years of wasted time running from the mission bell

The mission bells were ringing in my mind
I know the Lord was calling me but I
Tried to keep my distance but I could not deny
The toll of the mission bell
