Jacquelyn Brown - Troubadour Harpist

Into Darkness
music & lyrics © 1995 Jacquelyn Brown
6:55 min / track 14 / CD: Earth Air Fire Water

Be still . . . my soul . . .
for we shall be set free
from pain and death.
I give my anguished body unto you . . .
In life and breath.

I hear the church bells chime
ringing out the Divine.
I feel the church bells chime
echoes of the Divine . . .
Presence . . .

Angels guard my bed,
when the reaper comes to call.
Hold me safe and close.
Oh my body must not fall
into darkness . . . into darkness . . .
I'll leave behind my loved ones, oh so dear,
with suffering hearts.
Yet peace and freedom beckon at my door.
'Twill pierce my heart.
Carry me through death
On your feathers soft and white.
Through the darkness deep
I see glimmerings of the light
of tomorrow . . . of tomorrow . . .
"Come unto me, all ye who are weak and heavy
laden, and I will give you rest."
