I've tried web searches for this song . Not sure of the correct title. It begins "Look how far we've come" and the verses end with the phrase "a place where love abides". Thank you. John

LOVE ABIDES
Tom Russell

Hey, look how far we've come. Do we know who we are?
Stranded on a mountain top trying to catch a falling star
Here's to what we've left behind us. Here's to what we've kept inside.
May the road that lies before us lead to a place where love abides.

I went walking with my baby through the early morning frost,
Saw three crosses by the roadside where three young souls were lost.
I guess they're flying with the angels. Jesus took them for a ride,
High above the Rio Grande, they'll find a place where love abides.

You may cross the barren desert. You must walk your path alone,
But a sudden storm may blind you, shake your spirit to the bone,
Seeking shelter for a weary heart, somewhere to rest, somewhere to hide,
Then somewhere down that troubled road, you find a place where love abides.

Our people came across the water with their fearful untamed hearts,
Standing on a foreign shoreline, praying for a brand new start,
Hand in hand across the mountains and the ragin' rivers wide,
'Til they've reached the distant ocean or found a place where love abides.

You may cross the barren desert. You might walk your path alone,
But a sudden storm may blind you, shake your spirit to the bone,
Seeking shelter for a weary heart, somewhere to rest, somewhere to hide,
Then somewhere down that troubled road, you find a place where love abides.

Hey, look how far we've come. Do we know who we are?
Stranded on a mountain top trying to catch a falling star.

[Iris DeMent and Tom Russell sing this as a duet on Tom Russell's album "The Man from God Knows Where," Hightone Records, 1999.]
