Music & lyrics by Vij Sodera

Oh my LORD, how much longer must we roam this desert
Oh my LORD, thirty years without a home
Oh my LORD, how much longer must we walk this sand
Whatever happened to the promise of the golden land
There’s a road down there
But sometimes it’s so hard see the way
It’s been a long long time
The people moan, they ask…what can I say…
And they keep knocking on my tent
These thoughts keep swirling round my head all night long
And they keep knocking on my tent
These thoughts keep swirling round my head all night
All night long, they just wear me out, the same old song
All night long, they just murmur and complain
All night long, I just try and keep my eyes on You LORD
All night long, until the morning dew comes down

Oh my LORD, how much  longer must we roam this desert
Oh my LORD, thirty years without a home
Oh my LORD, how much longer must we walk this sand
Whatever happened to the promise of the golden land
You gave Your bread from heaven
Water from a solid rock
But still the people moan
How long they ask, but what can I say…
And they keep knocking on my tent
These thoughts keep swirling round my head all night long
And they keep knocking on my tent
These thoughts keep swirling round my head all night
Oh my LORD, I just want to praise Your holy Name
Oh my LORD, You’re the One who set me free
Oh my LORD, I just want to keep my eyes on You LORD
O my LORD, come pour Your Spirit down on me!

Vij’s notes:
This song captures a window of time during the 40 years of the Exodus in which the Israelites were wandering in the desert. Moses is talking to God and is bemoaning the fact that the people are so rebellious.
He asks God for strength to continue.The wildlife was filmed in Israel.
The millipede was filmed as it walked in virtual darkness at the bottom of a water cistern at tel Meggido.
The kestrel was filmed hovering above the dried up brook next to the northern hill of the Elah Valley (around 20m SE of Jerusalem), which is where David encamped with king Saul’s army. Goliath and the Philistine army were encamped on the southern hill.
The landscapes were filmed at Qumran on the Dead Sea and in the Negev desert, Israel.
