From the album Say My Name

In cart Not available Out of stock

Evensong pours out regret and hope at the close of this day and each day. I will count what’s swept away and give thanks for the love that remains. Within our bittersweet dreams lies the knowledge that we are held more deeply than we know.

Lyrics

At the closing of this day
I will count what’s swept away
And give thanks for the love that remains
I know challenges undone and songs yet to be sung
But the beauty endures and awaits

I am held deeper than I know
Beyond all that’s spoken below
Even when I lose my place in the sun
And my wounds won’t let go
I have offered myself to this day

While changes shift the sand
Mysteries are at hand
Trials my mistakes will demand
My disappointments know soon I’ll hear voices of the moon
And embrace those bittersweet dreams

I am held deeper than I know
Beyond all that’s spoken below
Even when I lose my place in the sun
And my wounds won’t let me go
I have offered myself to this day

I have lived through fires of grief
Felt its forces retreat
Worn my heart on my sleeve while I sleep
As I surrender to the dark, my life is my art
Truth will finally find peace

We are held deeper than we know
Beyond all that’s spoken below
Even when we lose our place in the sun
And our wounds won’t let us go
We have offered ourselves to this day

At the closing of each day
I will count what’s swept away
And give thanks for the love that remains
I know challenges begun and songs that will be sung
While the beauty endures and awaits
The beauty endures and awaits
