"Lo And Behold" as written by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater....
Simeon, he was a man,
Held his heart out in his hand,
A hollow land of autumn breeze

Evenings in the brittle rain,
Leaves that fill the barren plain
With simple embroideries

In the temple yesterday,
Was a man, who came to pray,
Who couldn't stay and couldn't leave.

So, he fell down on his knees,
Sued for grace and sued for peace,
A little ease, and not to grieve

Marion, she met a man,
Took her to Jerusalem,
To take a stand, escape a scene

To wander in the honey sea,
Drink the milk of Memory,
And never be herself again.

In the temple yesterday,
Was a woman came to pray
Who couldn't say, and couldn't see.

So, she fell down on her knees,
Sued for grace and sued for peace,
Sued the priest, to set her free.

Lo, lo and behold
Lo, lo and behold

    General CommentThis song has a very Biblical basis but it's Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's interpretation of Luke 2:25 - 35. Simeon is a man described in those verses as a priest and who saw Mary and Joseph when they brought Jesus to the temple in accordance to the law. He then blessed Mary and Her child.
