Lyrics

‘But what can you actually accomplish by going there?’ the reporter asks.
‘We are going to suffer with the Iraqis…’
- George Weber, Christian Peacemaker Team member interviewed in December 2002.


In this homeless and broken
soulled present we’re in
Let me see you.
Amid orphans and unsurprise
Let me suffer too,
suffer too.


And the moment of nights end
Is the moment that dawns light
Shines bright enough to
see in a stranger’s face a friend.


In these days of Truth as Second
Language pure words let
Me speak with you.
In this age of unread First Books first words let
me read with you,
Read with you.


‘Cause the moment of nights end
Is the moment that dawns light
Shines bright enough to
see in a stranger’s face a friend.
