THEE SILVER MT. ZION lyrics : "There's A River In The Valley Made Of Melting Snow"


Mystery and wonder did light up the valley
To be beat back by dark clouds

And a harsh reeking wind

And that battle staggered through three awful months

To stop for a minute
Just to start up again


Your hands like birds in the trees
If the trees themselves were all on fire
Your hips on mine make a choir

Singing "Baruch atta adonai"

And the river never made it to the lake

So the lake surrendered to the mountains
And the mountain's heart did $#[email protected] break
At the sight

Of your nervous hands

And oh, my love, so gently breathing

So my heart does softly swell
So her and me did greet the evening
With much red wine and giddy yells


In these times of wandering soldiers
Building towers on ruined field

I hold my love to my belly
And her feel breath fall across my hands


I have grown tired of the struggle
And I've grown tired of making plans
I think I'll quit to the valley

Regain my strength and start again

Where once we were some clumsy army

And now we are just lazy hens
I think I'll quit to the valley
'Til the light moves me again


So let's link arms, sisters and brothers
And let's promise not to retreat

Well, there is glory in our failure
So let's march to the rhythm of fatigue


To live our lives without leaders
To live in joy without fear
Let's walk together to the valley

And let the lights redeem our tears
