See my hand is moving
Touching all that’s real
And once it stroked love’s body
Now it claws the past

The scent of a flower
The colours of the morning
Friends to believe in
Tears soon forgotten
See how the rain drives away, another day

If a leaf has fallen
Does the tree lie broken?
And if we draw some water
Does the well run dry?

The sigh of a mother
The screaming of lovers
Like two angry tigers
They tear at each other
See how for him lifetime’s fears disappear

Once Jesus suffered
Heaven could not see him
And now my ship is sinking
The captain stands alone

A pawn on a chessboard
A false move by God will now destroy me
But wait, on the horizon
A new dawn seems to be rising
Never to recall this passerby, born to die
