Come Healing (vom Album: Old Ideas)

Chorus:

O, gather 'round the brokenness

Bring it to me now

The fragrance of those promises

You never dared to vow

The splinters that you carried

The cross you left behind

Come healing of the body

Come healing of the mind

And let the heavens hear it

The penitential hymn

Come healing of the spirit

Come healing of the limb

Leonard:

Behold the gates of mercy

In arbitrary space

And none of us deserving

Of cruelty or the grace

Together:

O, solitude of longing

Where love has been confined

Come healing of the body

Come healing of the mind

O, see the darkness yielding

That tore the light apart

Come healing of the reason

Come healing of the heart

O, troubledness concealing

An undivided love

The heart beneath is teaching

To the broken heart above

And let the heavens utter

Let the earth proclaim

Come healing of the altar

Come healing of the name

Chorus:

O, longing of the branches

To lift the little bird

O, longing of the arteries

To purify the blood

Together:

And let the heavens hear it

The penitential hymn

Come healing of the spirit

Come healing of the limb

O let the heavens hear it

The penitential hymn

Come healing of the spirit

Come Healing of the limp
