Land of the Rising Sun

(Junko)

On this bridge I walk over the water
Searching for some peace
Memories of the life I left behind
I look to the east
A tiny child running through the rice field
In the land of the rising sun
A tiny kite lifting up to heaven
Touch the face of the Holy One

From the land of the rising sun
Into this place I've come
Inside of me there will always be
The land of the rising sun

I have crossed the bridge over the water
Never said goodbye
To the little girl I left behind
She had no time to cry
A tiny child lost among the strangers
Walking under the Risen Son
A simple prayer lifting up to heaven
Touch the heart of the Holy One

(spoken in Japanese, then English)
Lord Jesus
I will walk with you forever

From the land of the rising sun
Into my heart You've come
Inside of me there will always be
The land of the Rising Son
(repeat)
The land of the Rising Son
