The Stone Coyotes

Sing Me a Hymn

B. Keith


It’s a silent night

Too silent somehow

If there be comfort

I could use it now


The only sound

The beat of my heart

Like a frightened child

Alone in the dark


Sing me a hymn

Play me an anthem

I want to hear Halleluiah

From winged seraphim

        (When my hopes grow dim)

Sing me a hymn


The feeling you get

When the walls resound

You could put pen to paper

But you could never write it down


Mercy and forgiveness

A voice from above

Life everlasting

And eternal love


I’ve lived all these years

And I only know this

That sometimes it hurts

To watch the way the light hits


The edge of the ocean

The path to the door

And know that one day I won’t see it

Or you anymore
