Our friends appear like the dawn
A flock of sheep and a flock of boars
And though I slept my heart lay awake
And cried out "Oh Lord, don't delay!"

Then He spoke and the locusts came
Water gushed out from the the rock
He breathed and the face of the earth was renewed
The depths of the oceans convulsed

You do not need to own guitars
You do not need a set of drums
All you need is your throat and mind
To lift noise up to God

Oh, please do not forsake me
Where is your finger upon my lips?
And though I sleep in the dirt and the leaves
Please touch my heart with your tongue

You do not need to own guitars
You do not need a set of drums
All you need is your throat and mind
To lift noise up to God
Lord, remember my song in the night
And remember my outstretched hands
And the way that I wanted to groan
How I did all these things

All the world is ridiculous
What I see burdens my heart
There's a wreath made of hands
And the porch where we spent our time
Lies in ruins and our house is burned
Our friends necks, they are outstretched
And our neighbors plot against us
I can not understand all this
Please take us to glory, Lord, do not delay

Now he appears like the dawn
Shoulders all blazing with light
And though I slept my heart lay awake
And cried out "Oh Lord, don't delay"

He spoke and the locusts came out of the sky
Water gushed out from the rock

He breathed and the face of the earth was renewed
The depths of the oceans convulsed

Now
