Open Your Eyes
Open your eyes my newborn son See your world that's new begun Growing the land beneath our feet Heaven sent across to eat crust Hush-a-bye taste the sweetness of your years By and by we'll all learn the taste of tears. Open your eyes my growing son There is hard work to be done Follow your father to his toil His bend your back and break the soil Who can say what you sow beneath the sand Day by day something stirs our sleeping land Open your eyes my gentle son Take your leave and take your gun Follow your father through the hills to the hills Heaven gives and heaven kills Go with God and the youg men in their prime Here I'll wait where I waited all through time Open your eyes my beloved son Is your day so quickly done ? How can you fall asleep so soon When the sun stands yet at noon ? Walk with me where we walked spring ago Come and see the flowers have begun to grow La la la la la la la la la
