LOREENA MCKENNITT lyrics : "The Dark Night of the Soul"

Upon a darkened night
the flame of love was burning in my breast
And by a lantern bright

I fled my house while all in quiet rest

Shrouded by the night

And by the secret stair I quickly fled
The veil concealed my eyes
while all within lay quiet as the dead


Oh night thou was my guide
of night more loving than the rising sun

Oh night that joined the lover
to the beloved one
transforming each of them into the other


Upon that misty night
in secrecy, beyond such mortal sight

Without a guide or light
than that which burned so deeply in my heart
That fire t'was led me on

and shone more bright than of the midday sun
To where he waited still
it was a place where no one else could come


Within my pounding heart
which kept itself entirely for him

He fell into his sleep
beneath the cedars all my love I gave
From o'er the fortress walls

the wind would his hair against his brow
And with its smoothest hand
caressed my every sense it would allow


I lost myself to him
and laid my face upon my lover's breast

And care and grief grew dim
as in the morning's mist became the light
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair

there they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
there they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
