lyrics

A Bow In The Clouds (All Through The Night)
By Jeff Johnson based on the Welsh lullaby.

Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.
– Ephesians 5:14b (NAS)

A child's lullaby is what I heard,
An echo through the chasm of my fear,
It lasted all through the night.

The melody descended on my heart,
With words so beautiful, I had to weep,
They lasted all through the night.

Soft and drowsy,
Hours are creeping,
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping.

I woke up feeling like I'd slept for years,
Remembering the vision that I saw,
There's a bow in the clouds today,
Oh Lord, what can I say?

I can sing you praise,
I will give you delight ...

A child's lullaby is what I hear,
An echo through the chasm of my fear,
All through the night.

The melody descends upon my heart,
With words so beautiful, I have to weep,
All through the night.

O'er thy spirit,
Gently stealing,
Visions of delight revealing.

They lasted through the night,
I dreamed that I was dancing on the clouds with you,
There's a bow in the clouds today,
Oh Lord, what can I say?
