: Dietrich Strause: "Boy Born To Die"

LYRICS:

Far beyond the timber, the wolf with watchful eyes
on the lamb upon the altar, on the hand upon the knife

How cold, how slow, the winter?
How cruel that hunger binds?
The world not made for living
The boy born to die

The wildfire eternal, the vigil flame we keep
In its warmth we gather in shelters and streets

Wrap your arms around him
Don’t waste your time
The world not made for living
The boy born to die

So lay your veil and flowers
Bury your eyes
The world not made for living
The boy born to die

(C) 2015 Dietrich Strause (BMI)
