Hush, hush, hush, hush
Hush, hush, hush, hush

I heard a sound come from the ground
All of the trees are a buzz
Talking in tongues
Talking with lungs
Talking with freedom

All of the earth is soon to give birth
Look at the mountains alive
Birds and the bees, insects and me
All of us longing, longing for home, home
Home is somewhere I've never known

Over the river
Over the river
I've set my hope
Over the river
Over the river
I'll find my home in you, you

Death where is your sting? Your signet ring?
Where is your power? Why all this war?
Death to the score, nations are fading
Kingdom of light, setting us right, finally human
Give me your tongue, you will be done
Inside I'm lonely, lonely for love, love
Love is something I've never known

Over the river
Over the river
I'll find my home
Over the river
Over the river
I'll find my hope in you

Hush, hush, hush

    General CommentNature is talking in language the whole world can understand. People of every tounge.

    Romans 8:22-23 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

    It's talking about labor pains comeing before the birth. The birth is Christ's return. Christ will return and make things right. This world is not our home. The river is the Jordan river. A picture of crossing into "the promise land." The finale, perminate home.
