lyrics

I've seen great beauty in the starlit sky,
In the sweep of music, in my lover’s eyes
But it has no weight apart from you.
I’ve sought for comfort, and I’ve scrounged for rest,
And I’ve searched for someway I could be content,
But the land is wanton, without you.

I’ve known man’s glory, just how it lasts,
With its fading flower and its withering grass
Cause There’s nothing living, without you
I found innocence was stained, all the gold was lead,
I drank the ocean but I thirst again.
Cause the heart is restless without you.

So, I eat the dust, I wear the ash
I bear the hunger, I keep the fast
It’s a lovely wait, to be with you.
I cry out in losses and I wait through wars,
But I know my Portion, my great Reward
It’s a lovely wait, to be with you.

I’m across from Canaan I’m looking in,
At the beautiful splendor of the Promised land
But I will not enter, without you.
There is no affection, there is no feast,
There is no pleasure, there is no peace,
No, there is no heaven, without you.

So, I eat the dust, I wear the ash
I bear the hunger, I keep the fast
It’s a lovely wait, to be with you.
I cry out in losses and I wait through wars,
But I know my Portion, my great Reward
It’s a lovely wait, to be with you.
