O Light

(© 2007 C. Rothschild)

On an everchanging road traveling country here below
At this junction I sing this song
Help me not to wait too long
There comes a day when everyone must fly away

My time with you on this earth is done
My love’s with you in your travels on
Thank you for what you’ve shown me
You are someone who’s known me
I’m telling you you’re someone who brought life anew

Child had you more than one who never grew to see the sun
In other rays they shine somehow
and in that light may you join them now

O light o light o shining in the night
O light o light o shining in the night,
O light o light o shining in the night
O light o light o shining in the night, o shining in the night

Here’s the place they call Belen
A cloth to wrap a baby in
This is where our roads divide
Mother’s arms are open wide
Now it’s north we go
You the bird, I the shadow

And if this song should come to you, please know it comes from another who
Drives this highway just like you, in this light that’s always new

O light o light o shining in the night
O light o light bring my sister home tonight
O light o light o shining in the night
O light o light bring my sister home tonight

I don’t care what flag may stand in your heart or on your land
I just want us to arrive, bring the families home alive
I don’t care what flag may stand in your heart or on your land
I just want us to arrive, bring the families home alive
Bring the families home alive, bring the families home alive

Shining in the night over this highway

Please help me to learn from this highway
Help me to return from this highway
Help me to arrive from this highway
Bring us home alive from this highway

Please help us to learn from this highway
Help us to return from this highway
Help us to arrive from this highway
Bring us home alive from this highway

On an everchanging road traveling country here below

Help me not to wait too long
