Hymn #76

HYMN #76

To meet me is to dare into the darkness
But if you are devoted to a dream
Go and light the lantern
Leave your family abandoned
Meet me by the shallows of the stream
O meet me by the shallows of the stream

To ask me is to love with hesitation
My answer is the same as it has been
Here is my affection
No conditions and no questions
Open up the door and let me in
Open up the door and let me in

To trust me is to travel past the towers
Those who make it back from here are few
It takes all of your devotion
To have courage for a moment
The world has bested better men than you
The world has bested better men than you

To love me is to set upon the mountain
Every step is harder than the last
But to find the step above it
Is to triumph, is to summit
Taste the frigid water from the tap
Taste the frigid water from the tap

To curse me for the life we left behind us
Is to misremember what was cost
For from the vacant cradle
To the empty kitchen table
Show me what was precious that was lost
Show me what was precious that was lost
