42 And I Believe...

"I don't believe in an interventionist God

But I know, darling, that you do

But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him

Not to intervene when it came to you

Not to touch a hair on your head

To leave you as you are

And if He felt He had to direct you

Then direct you into my arms

 

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms

 

And I don't believe in the existence of angels

But looking at you I wonder if that's true

But if I did I would summon them together

And ask them to watch over you

To each burn a candle for you

To make bright and clear your path

And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love

And guide you into my arms

 

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms

 

And I believe in Love

And I know that you do too

And I believe in some kind of path

That we can walk down, me and you

So keep your candle burning

And make her journey bright and pure

That she will keep returning

Always and evermore

 

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms"
