BLESS THE LAMP
Lyrics: Aine King (Orkney)
Bless the lamp lit in your window
Bless the fire in your hearth
Bless the folk who love and keep you
From the danger in the dark.
For there's magic and there's moonlight
And there's starlight on the sea
And beneath the hill there's music,
And there's tales of mystery.
But above the ground, time passes
And all our friends have gone
From the cradle to the kirkyard
And still we can't come home!
