Oh, Charitable Thief Lyrics
Slip in this certain knot of peace
I'm keeping silent, keeping silent til in turn it keeps me.
Won't you remain with me?
Oh, come blissful sleep.
Won't you be my release?
Oh, charitable thief.
Come take me away.
Oh, vessel of grace whisper in my ear
A melodious sonnet of forgiveness.
Sweet seraphim won't you sing me to peace?
I'll be waiting.
I'll keep my ear to the earth
I'll keep my head to the ground
I'll keep my hands from shaking
I'll keep listening for the sound
I'll keep my eyes to the sea
I'll keep these words in my heart
I'll keep your name on my lips
Until it tears me apart.
