Song Description

A slow song by definition...but a "big" song by the message. Reminiscent of the work of England's Dave Stewart/Barbara Gaskin.

Story Behind the Song

I was working with creating a character-thru-lyrics...akso telling a story-thru-song. I wonder if a person can find God more easily by looking inward...not outward.

Lyrics

Hands of Heaven

darkly glows the corner streetlamp
lonely is tonight
dead shadows behind dull haunted wandering eyes
searching ruin stumbling through sad cinders
Rag Man, in robes of filth
down on his knees he cries
to any kindly god tonight
who might let him in

?take me up in your hands of heaven
rain sweet grace on this unforgiven
no I have no life to show
I?ve nothing here to give you
hold me there in your hands of heaven
sinking starving my fate forsaken, pray
see through these sins today
I only want to know you
I want to know you??

and he keeps on wanting

frozen in fear, then off and running
old cold closet ghosts
time after time
they?ve all but run him down
straight ahead his angel?s coming
come to take him home
she shines?
now he sees
it?s to the god inside him that the Rag Man prays
in these passion plays

?take me up in your hands of heaven
rain down mercy on this unforgiven
no I have no life to show
I?ve nothing left to give you
hold me there in your hands of heaven
sinking starving my fate forsaken, pray
see through these sins today
I only want to know you??

kyrie eleison
mercy sweet mercy
kyrie eleison

take me up in your hands of heaven
can it be that I?m not forsaken?
though I have no one but me
it?s through me that you?ll show you
hold me there in your hands of heaven
fortune smiles where no fate?s mistaken
pray there is no judgment day
I only want to know you
I really want to know you?
