YAHWEH

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street


Take these shoes
And make them fit

Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere


Take this shirt
And make it clean, clean

Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones



Take this soul
And make it sing, sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take these hands
Teach them what to carry



Take these hands
Don't make a fist

Take this mouth
So quick to criticize
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Still waiting for the dawn, the sun is coming up
The sun is coming up on the ocean



This love is like a drop in the ocean
This love is like a drop in the ocean

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, tell me now
Why the dark before the dawn?

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill


Take this city
If it be your will

What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart



Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break
