lyrics

To sing against the night is more than I can bear
To sing you out of sight, may every curtain tear
May every bird that's born and every head that's shorn
Be blessed in heaven's arms, heaven's warm

To give each word to flight beyond this final hour
And when my cup is filled and I am standing still
May we be blessed in heaven's arms

To sing against the night, the dove will call you through
To bring their eyes in sight of all that's good and true
For all the fear and dread of all that's lying dead
May they be blessed in heaven's arms

To sing against the night is more than I can stand
To bring the end to flight I need your open hand
And when the sun goes down she'll wear her golden crown
And you'll be blessed in heaven's arms

To sing against the night, it's all we have to do
To sing it out of sight and make a sweetheart true
And on that final day when I come home to stay
I'll be blessed in heaven's arms
I'll be blessed in heaven's arms
