about

A song of comfort and hope written in tribute to a woman from the narration of her late sibling.

lyrics

She gave alms and dropped tears
For to resurrect the stone
But such things are only futile
Or so time has shown

That we hold them and we love them
As long as they are here
And if only our hope
Shared the strengths of our fear

Chorus:

Dear sister, Dear sister
I can feel no more pain
And I patiently await
When we’ll meet once again

Dear sister, Dear sister
Silhouette in the sun
For to run and to laugh
As we had never done

Blinded by one light
David’s star be the mark
Please grant her the power
To see through the dark

That he’s safe now, Enlightened
After here’s so much more
You’ve no need to be frightened
I can show you the door

Chorus

It had hurt once to watch you
Grow the years beyond me
But each step brought a new day
And I began to see

That you’d soon be a woman
With an expectant hand
For a kinship, a loved one
The trust in a man

So God bless you, my angel
May no one treat you mean
And I’ll watch you, protect you
From my silver screen

And if you should stumble and fall
I will carry you
To the end and to salvation
Where all’s revealed to be true

Chorus, END
