Adam Again “the Earth is Hard, the Treasure Fine”

in 1992 and great album was released.

I first heard in 4 years later in 1996. I thought it was amazing. this album and others showed me Christian’s can make honest music.

This week I found a CD copy of “Dig” by adam again.

and I feel in love with it again.

the Title song is my favorite!

here are the lyrics.

Dig by Adam Again

I had big idea
I had a lazy eye
I broke the sacred seal
I told a lazy lie
I’ve had my conscience bent
I’ve had my patience tried
I’ve been up in the desert
And down by the riverside

Will the eagle try
If the sky’s untrue?
Do the faithful sigh
Because they are so few?
Remember when I cried?
Remember when you knew?
Remember that look in your eyes?
I know I do

And count the stars to measure tme
The earth is hard, the treasure fine
To the sea I’ll crawl on my knees

Feel it coming in
Feel it going out
Water covers sand
Blood covers doubt
So I begin again
Again, the healing bow
There was a time that I might have surrendered
But not now

Consult the cards to measure mine
The earth is hard, but the treasure fine
At the sea, I’ll wait on my knees
