God, Give Us Love In The Time That We Have

Posted in music, poetry by amoslanka on January 18, 2009

Its not likely that many of you out there haven’t heard this song, but its lyrics are worth posting nonetheless. Samuel Beam’s imagery and conscience are about as penetrating as they come. 

God, there is gold hidden deep in the ground
God, there’s a hangman that wants to come around

How we rise when we’re born
Like the ravens in the corn
On their wings, on our knees
Crawling careless from the sea

God, there are guns growing out of our bones
God, every road takes us farther from home

All these men that you’ve made
How we wither in the shade
Of your trees, on your wings
We are carried to the sea

God, give us love in the time that we have 

– Iron and WineOn Your Wings
