lyrics

Communion Spring 2014

Gonna lay out a bridge across a watery canyon
Throw down a span over a great divide
With the girders strung the deck all fastened down
It’s time to go to the other side
One step at a time across the chasm
Arms held out wide almost home

And here we are in the arms of the not forgotten ones
Brass band trumpets our safe return
Long the nights we conjured up this arrival
All this time apart who knew communion would be so good

Now the desert looms like an empty coffer
Void of all the gifts that will sustain
Move the body sift the memory
Search out water in this land of Cain

And here we are in the arms of the not forgotten ones
Brass band trumpets our safe return
Long the nights we conjured up this arrival
All this time apart who knew communion would be so good

High mountain pass snow comes down heavy now
Heavy o’er the shoulders forward motion bound
Finally the summit the way tilts in favour
All praise descent then level ground

And here we are in the arms of the not forgotten ones
Brass band trumpets our safe return
Long the nights we conjured up this arrival
All this time apart who knew communion would be so good
