"In The Lord's Arms" as written by and Ben Harper....
Like the wings stolen from an angel
Like petals gone from a rose
Like a dove caught in a storm

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

The wind it blew straight through us
And whispered to me in tongues
I was told, I was warned

Tonight he would be in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he is in the Lord's Arms

So I drink this wine to him
With each glass, a memory
He left with his crown of thorns

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

    General CommentThis song strangely came on my random playlist the night my grandmother died. Evoked emotions I had not felt for some time. had never heard it before that night. She is all i think of when I hear it now.
