lyrics

A P r e a c h e r ’ s O r g a n
Out into the darkness, not broken not lifeless, am I now losing my mind
Row in this boat, the black robe and this musical box will show them my find
Only 34 and I’ve lost so much more, but this old box has kept me alive
Yield my calling, that great falling, and all my grace has run dry
And so we just play
Forsake the last day
And we sing and we sing and we sing and we sing
And we row and we row and we row and we row
Into the fire, I would rather go than to have a life away from her love
When I saw her, I knew that I was giving up everything for the sight of her waltz
Taken with the sounds of a musical box, I could just watch her dance through the night
At that moment I knew that this little black book and this robe is nothing but loss
And so dear brothers, leave me here in this darkness, leave me here with the lost
No great commission, no joyous redemption, I no longer trust in your god
