The giver

Hey brother, hey
You’re looking lost
Here let me help you
Carry your cross

Hey brother, drink
Put water on your lips
There’s a hole in your soul
Where your shirt is ripped

Hey sister, hey
Let me help you with that
You have your freedom
No rod on your back

Hey sister, sing
Please… that song you sing
The one about the eagle
With the mighty wings

Tomorrow we’ll come to the valley
And we’ll come to the river
And we’ll come to the chasm
And we’ll come to the giver
Of life…

We can come as a lover
Come as a nation
Come for salvation
Come to the giver of life

Give of thy fruit and live
Put honey on thy wound
Swim in the starlight
Under the holy moon

Go down to the river and pray
In the first light of the dawn
Angels in the mist
Will keep you warm

Hey Jesus, hey
It’s blood and dust
Here let me help you
Carry your cross

Hey Jesus, drink
Put water on your lips
There’s a fire on the mountain
Where your heart is ripped

Hey Mary, hey
You can lean on me
We can rest our bones
By the five great trees

Hey Mary, sing
Please sing that song
The one about the stars
And where we came from

Tomorrow we’ll come to the valley
And we’ll come to the river
And we’ll come to the chasm
And we’ll come to the giver
Of life…

We can come as a lover
Come as a nation
Come for salvation
Come to the giver of life
