lyrics

Spoken word intro:

Abide with us o’ living deep
'Til the hour we meet our end
Ere we sink to sunless sleep
Without the promise to ascend

Verses:

We live our days in service
To the far rush of your sea
The tides deliver mercies
That no one else perceives

Nothing hurts as it once did
With death so close at hand
Your gospel is a blessing
Though it raises up the damned

Lyrical refrain:

Chaos, cosmos
Cosmos, chaos
The stars, they cannot hold

Verses:

Natives of the living deep
Full straight before the storm
Islanded by oceans rough
Where more is hid than found

Mysteries of death misnamed
In silence see the sounds
Of winding sheets and suffering
A phantom earth beyond

You give us sense and soul
The wisdom that is woe
Breaking and unbroken
Like a wave upon the land

Nothing hurts as it once did
With death so close at hand
Your gospel is a blessing
Though it raises up the damned

Lyrical refrain:

Cosmos, chaos
Chaos, cosmos
The stars, they cannot hold

Verses:

We live our days in service
To the far rush of your sea
The tides deliver mercies
That no one else perceives

Mysteries of death misnamed
In silence see the sounds
Of winding sheets and suffering
A phantom earth beyond

Nothing hurts as it once did
With death so close at hand
Your gospel is a blessing
Though it raises up the damned

Chorus:

My dreaming god of wonder
My lonely god of pain
You crush me to the earth
Just to lift me up again
(repeat)

Just to… lift me up…

Chant:

And cosmos from chaos
And chaos from cosmos
And cosmos from chaos
And chaos from cosmos
Cosmos
Chaos

Verse:

And still nothing hurts as it once did
With death so close at hand
Your gospel is a blessing
Though it raises up the damned
