Lyrics

The palms that we once waved have turned to ashes in our hands
We did not stay a-wake with You to pray
And now a mid-day darkness starts to cover all this land
And the very earth be-neath our feet to sway

Remembering we are dust we fall before You now
We weep and we anoint our heads with ashes
Today’s the day of turning, today we make our vow
To cling to You until this darkness passes

A flame burns in the darkness to make the sadness bright
A light shines in the stillness to see us through the night

Unfolding hearts before You we are desperate for Your power
To enter in and touch and heal and change us
We release our grip on everything but hold to You this hour
We don’t want any-one but You to claim us

Today’s the day of turning, to-day we make our vow
To cling to You until this darkness passes
