Roxy Music – Psalm lyrics


Try on your love
Like a new dress
The fit and the cut
Your friends to impress
Try on your smile -
Square on your face
Showing affection
Should be no disgrace
Try out your god
Hope he will send
Kindness from strangers
On whom you depend
Try on his coat
A mantle most fine
Myriad colours
His harmony-thine
Believe in me
Once seemed a good line
Now belief in jesus
Is faith more sublime
Head in the clouds
But I canґt see the lord
Short of perfection
Iґll try to be good
Iґll stand at his gate
Iґll wait for his sign
Then iґll walk in his garden
When itґs my time
Drink from his cup
Hush now donґt you cry
His quiet waters
Will never, never run dry
Nearing deathґs vale
Heґs here by my side
He leads me to paradise
A mountain so high

Donґt be afraid
Just treasure his word
Singing his praises
I know that iґll be heard
Heґs gonna take you by the hand
Heґs gonna make you feel so good
Open up your eyes
And then youґll see all that you should
Forget all your troubles
You will feel no pain
Heґs all that you need
Heґs your everything
When iґm feeling all at sea
Deliverance is that distant shore
I will not be worried
Someday his house will be my home
For ever more
