Lyrics & notes

28 May 1980

I’ve spent my whole life
running away from pain
thinking it wasn’t your will
always asking questions
demanding you explain
never hearing you say,
“Be still.”

let it be done to me
according to your word
till your love flows through me
into this dying world
can’t shut my eyes to all I’ve seen
deny what I have heard
let it be done to me
according to your word

Lord, I know you never
turned away from pain
instead you took it face to face
you won the victory
even through the...

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

by night on my bed I sought him
he whom my soul loveth so
I sought but I could not find him
and now I will rise and go

out in the streets of the city
and out on the broad highway
for he whom my soul so loveth
hath left me and gone away

(instrumental)

and then in the dawn I saw him
he whom my heart loveth so
I found him, held him, and told him
I never could let him...

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

how lovely, how nimble, are thy feet
O prince's daughter
they sparkle and flash and can run more fleet
than running water
on all the mountains there is no gazelle
no roe or hind
can o'ertake thee nor leap as well
but lag behind

thy joints and thighs are a supple band
on which are met
fair jewels a cunning master hand
hath fitly set
in all the palace, search where'er...

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

I am my love's and he is mine
and this is his desire
that with his beauty I may shine
in radiant attire
and this will be when all of me
is pruned and purged with fire

come, my beloved, let us go
forth to the waiting field
and where thy choicest fruit trees grow
thy pruning knife now wield
that at thy will and through thy skill
their richest store my yield

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

I am the Rose of Sharon
a wild anemone
as lily 'mong the thorn trees
so is my love to me

an apple tree 'mong wild trees
my love is in my sight
I sit down in his shadow
his fruit is my delight

he brought me to his palace
and to the banquet hall
to share with me his greatness
I who am least of all

oh, give me help and comfort
for I am sick with shame

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

oh, where is thy beloved gone
thou fairest among women
where dost thou think he as turned aside
that we may seek him with thee

he is gone down into the garden
to the beds of spices sweet
for he feedeth among the lilies
tis there we are wont to meet

so I went down into the garden
the valley of buds and fruits
to see if the fruit trees budded
to look at the vinestock...

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

set me as a seal upon thy heart
thou, love, more strong than death
that I may feel through every part
thy burning, fiery breath
and then like wax held in the flame
may take the imprint of thy name

set me as a seal upon thine arm
thou, love, that bursts the grave
thy coals of fire can never harm
but only purge and save
thou, jealous love, thou, burning flame,
oh, burn out...

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

a garden closed art thou, my love
where none thy fruits can taste
a spring shut up, a fountain sealed
an orchard run to waste

awake, north wind, and blow, thou south
blow on my garden fair
that all the spices may flow out
as perfume on the air
