Iona – Songs Of Ascent (Part 1) lyrics

When Mercy comes to me as soft as the sky
And faith like a strong arm around me lies

And life is beginning like springtime in flower
My soul is awakened with truth to astound me

An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea

And You are the flowering bough of creation
From You cascades music like a million stars

And here in the purest light of the heavens
Mysteries revealing in songs that surround me

An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea
