Songs Of Ascent, Part 1

Songs Of Ascent, Part 1

Iona

When Mercy comes to me, as soft as the sky
And faith like a strong arm around me lies

And life is beginning, like springtime in flower
My soul is awakened, with truth to astound me

An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea

And You are the flowering bough of creation
From You cascades music, like a million stars

And here in the purest light of the heavens
Mysteries revealing, in songs that surround me

An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea

(with acknowledgement to George MacDonald and Ray Simpson) NB latin words used on this and other tracks quoted from ‘Altus Prosator’ – a 6th century poem attributed to Columba
