03. Glory Bound

Saints and Sinners
by Matt Maher



 

There is a train for the broken hearted



To carry you to the other side

There is a train for the ones forgotten

To carry you to a Heavenly light



Well I donít know which way youíre going

And I donít know if youíre lost or found

All that I know is youíve been forgiven

I tell you this train is glory bound



There is a train for the cheats and liars

For all the hitchers looking for a ride

There is a train for the lonely drifter

Tired of walking all alone in the night

So come on make some room in your heart for mercy

Come on make some room for a little grace

Come on make some room for the sinners and the saints



Well I donít know which way youíre going

And I donít know if youíre lost or found

All that I know is youíve been forgiven

I tell you this train is glory bound

And I can hear a band of angels

Amazing grace how sweet the sound

All that I know is youíve been forgiven

I tell you this train is glory bound

Glory bound, hey yea

I tell you this train is glory bound

Behind the Song:
This song is based on an old Woody Guthrie song that's been around for awhile called 'This Train is Bound for Glory.' If you look at the lyrics, it basically talks about how there's no room on the train for anybody but the saved. All the scum of the earth-they're basically done for. I understand the intent of what the song was trying to say, but it creates a false narrative. Jesus talks about separating the sheep and the goats and the wheat from the chaff; but He talks about it in the context of the end of time. As the church, we're really content to take on that role ourselves and go ahead and do it for Him. The problem is, when you do that, you're limiting grace. There's so many great men and women throughout history who have had conversations at the end of their lives! That's how audacious and scandalous grace is. So I started writing a song called 'Glory Bound' with the idea that there's a train for everybody, and I don't know which way your train's going, but I do know you've been forgiven. - Matt Maher
