Calvary Hill

Will you meet me my darling?
Will you come to the hill?
Will you lay down beside me
In the silvery chill?

Bring a shawl for your shoulders
And a scarf for your hair
I’ll light a fire by the boulders
And we can warm ourselves there

Will you come in the spirit?
Will you come in the flesh?
Will you come in the ether?
Will you lay down and rest?

In my dream I saw parchment
Charcoal ink and a quill
Will you meet me my darling
Up on Calvary Hill?

Take my hand
O my darling
Will you come with me?
I choose you
O my flower
Do you choose me?

I’ll make a tea from the nettles
And a song from the stone
Will you dance the five rhythms
As I tap on the drum?

There’s a portal I know of
Where the wild roses kiss
Shall we step o’er the threshold
Between the old world and this?

Will you transcend the scriptures?
Will you transcend the blood?
Will you come to bear witness
To the mystery of love?

Do you say that you wish to?
Do you say that you will?
Will you meet me my darling
Up on Calvary Hill?

Take my hand
O my darling
Will you come with me?
I choose you
O my flower
Do you choose me?

We look west to the valley
We look north to the star
We look east to the sunrise
Where the archangels are

We look south to the city
We look up to the skies
But the essence of beauty
Is what I see in your eyes

I can feel your sweet heartbeat
So rapid and true
I can feel that you ask me:
“Is it you? Is it you?”

Shall we do this together?
Shall we brave every ill?
Shall we start our Grail journey
Up on Calvary Hill?

Take my hand
O my darling
Will you come with me?
I choose you
O my flower
Do you choose me?

Well the road has much danger
There is peril and toil
There are thieves in the shadows
There are snakes ready coiled

I look up to our saviour
Crosses one, two and three
Will you do this my darling?
Will you do this with me?

A vow made in heaven
Is a vow for all time
I commit to your karma
Your life over mine

And if we get parted
And they threaten to kill
I will honour our vow
Made on Calvary Hill

Take my hand
O my darling
Will you come with me?
I love you
O my flower
Do you love me?

Calvary Hill, Calvary Hill
