lyrics

For One who knows no rival
You know all about being afraid.
From the day of your dangerous arrival
You started learning to be brave
The mighty fortress was no longer safe.
A story starts and there’s a grave for you.

Heaven’s praise has never ceased,
though our voices turned aside
trailing off on aimless themes;
melodies that fade and die.
So you entered life with death in mind
To seek the dead with your reviving song

O world, you are so young
But you’re tired and weary in your curse
So listen to the Ancient One
Who set his face and faced the worst….
whose child-like joy invades the earth.
The only spring in this old thirsty world
