lyrics

On the Last Day

On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
when this cup has spilled my years
the wasteful wine of joy and tears and lies
on the last day of my life
as I surrender to the bloom
of every death born in the womb of life
will I tremble before a brilliant light?
On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
will I be afraid, will I be afraid
to meet face to face what comes my way?

On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
when I’ve left the ones I loved
to carry on above our flooding tides
oh, on the last day of my life
be a kiss upon their heads
be violins sung into breathless rooms
teach their feet how to dance
‘cross your ballroom
On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
oh, please keep them safe
oh, please keep them safe
oh, Lord keep them in your mighty grace

A wing of hope will beat inside
this cage of bones to know the wind
to know where we will go when time
will take us through these walls so thin
A wing of hope will beat inside
this cage of bones to know the wind
to know where we will go when time
will take us through these walls so thin
on out of this house of skin, to meet what
will begin

On the last day of my life
when this work is done with me
and my shoes are fit on feet like mine
oh, on the last day of my life
Be the cloud that comes to call
to raise me too along with all
who’ve been poured
oh, bring together each bead in
one accord
On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
on the last day of my life, oh, Lord
lay me down like rain, lay me
down like rain, so new fields of grain
will stand to wave

On the last day of my life, oh, Lord
will I be afraid, to meet face to face
what comes my way?
I can not find the words
I will not find the words
