Breaks your knees and leaves you so
The sun can burn you up and wear you out
It's an angry summer

There's no room to smile When the face you make just before you cry Looks so young like a child 
The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal

Life on earth will end for all conceived And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal
 Steadfast my love
The end is near
Just keep your eyes ahead Grab hold of me
I'll help you there You're never on your own
You're never all alone 
Life on earth will end for all conceived And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives
 Breaks your knees and leaves you so
The sun can burn you up and wear you out
It's an angry summer

Don't look at the past again The first and last has made everything new
And you are too
So lift your head
And let your story be told
Life on earth will end for all conceived And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain
You're blistered and you're burned from it
Your wounds are gonna heal (forever arrives)

The sun will set on this my dear
Your labors aren't in vain

Life on earth will end for all conceived And prove to be only a breath,
A mist, a womb for what's to come
How soon forever arrives
