All is given in grace

Take thy sorrow
Take thy weariness and lay it down
Thou hast done well my love, to come this far
I have watched thee, and I knowest who thou truly are

But it’s not needed any more
And it hasn’t been in vain
Thy suffering… thy suffering hath wings
There is such glory in thy pain

Let every heartbeat strengthen thy faith
And may thy gaze fall upon the eternal face
May every prayer be an act of love
And know that all is given in grace

Surrender
Give thy whole heart to the sun
And by sacrifice thy wiltst become blessed
Before this very evening is done

Thou wert chosen to carry the Grail
And I know thou wiltst not fail
The knights and angels they watch thy every step
I see thy code of honour, and love wiltst prevail

Let Mother Mary, and Michael and John
And brother Francis and Mary Magdalen
And sister Margaret and sweet Therese
In the name of Jesus of Bethlehem

Let every heartbeat strengthen thy faith
And may thy gaze fall upon the eternal face
May every prayer be an act of love
And know that all is given in grace

Loss and sacrifice
Shame and a sense of disgrace
Do not see such things as punishments
But know that all is given in grace

Initiation and ordeal
Guilt and trauma and blame
These things are sent so we can truly feel
And know that all is given in grace

Shine thy light
So that others may know the way
This is thy mission upon the earth
This is the meaning, the meaning of thy birth

And thou sweet sister, thou art brave and true
The knights and angels they all love you
There are no mistakes upon this path
Only moments when the light bursts through

Let Mother Mary, and Michael and John
And brother Francis and Mary Magdalen
And sister Margaret and sweet Therese
In the name of Jesus of Bethlehem

Let every heartbeat strengthen thy faith
And may thy gaze fall upon the eternal face
May every prayer be an act of love
And know that all is given in grace

Knights & Angels, All is given in grace
