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!
