The Comforts of a King


My father have the strength to see
What you can hope, I can be
Thunder breaks, a hard rain pours
The clouds recede, both mine and yours

Geese form a phalanx in the sky
And the wind will never die

The power I don’t call upon
Is not the one I’ve relied on
The ways I tried can’t ever bring
The comforts of a king

I wait for you to call my name
Wait for mornings without blame
A light that opens like a dream
Where what I feared I’ve never seen

Forgiveness calms the lord of the sky
But the wind will never die

The power I don’t call upon
Is not the one I’ve relied on
The ways I tried can’t ever bring
The comforts of a king

Separation, separation, dissolve
Reparation, reparation, resolve

The power I never called upon
Is now the one I rely on
For the ways I tried can’t ever bring
The comforts of a king
