Its a wild stretch of land
Such a sad place to be
When the night comes heavy down
And the sands turn to sea

Many saints have lost their love
Many a pilgrim dies unseen
In that wild stretch of land
In that fire to be free

    General CommentThere is NOTHING more perfect than these 8 lines. Every time this part of Lands End begins, I'm right there with Patrick. We're in Cornwall, sitting on a cliff, watching ships being tossed by the sea.

    He's so powerful. I adore Patrick more than words can express.
