​In The Light I Wrap My Tears

This song is by At The Close Of Every Day and appears on the album Zalig Zijn De Armen Van Geest (2003).

I lighted you a candle
On that day in December
Barely light through the window
It's been eight years now

Thoughts rise above the level
That keeps me from crying
All these years I've been searching
A saving grace
A clear white cloud

My love passed away
In the months so dark and grey
Overwhelmed my greatest fears
In the light I wrap my tears

I hear an organ resounding
The same chords again and again
It's late I'm getting colder
A bit weaker now and then

If I'm the summer that comes frozen
Death is the cold breeze in my neck
It takes a stiff and stubborn sinner
To break a heart before the back

My saviour's on the cross
Who has seen such greater loss
I remember you my dear
For our god above is near
