BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics : "Jesus Was An Only Son"

Jesus was an only son
As he walked up Calvary Hill
His mother Mary walking beside him

In the path where his blood spilled
Jesus was an only son
In the hills of Nazareth

As he lay reading the Psalms of David
At his mother's feet


A mother prays, "Sleep tight, my child, sleep well
For I'll be at your side
That no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell,

Shall pierce your dreams this night"

In the garden at Gethsemane

He prayed for the life he'd never live,
He beseeched his Heavenly Father to remove
The cup of death from his lips


Now there's a loss that can never be replaced,
A destination that can never be reached

A light you'll never find in another's face,
A sea whose distance cannot be breached


Well Jesus kissed his mother's hands
Whispered, "Mother, still your tears,
For remember the soul of the universe

Willed a world and it appeared
