Beyond The Veil

This song is by Randy Stonehill and appears on the album Can't Buy A Miracle (1988).

The fibre of this life is paper thin,
A spider's web can be torn by a shift in the wind,
And the mirror pool is shattered when you toss a pebble in.

And I'm not afraid to admit that I'm afraid,
Bewildered by the great and the terrible way we're made,
Oh, that my eyes could shed these scales,
I can almost make out the shape of a face just beyond the veil.

Questions crowd my heart and will not pass,
My prayers are lost in silence and the sky is like brass,
But I'll stay on my knees until my answer comes at last.

And I'm not afraid to admit that I'm afraid,
Bewildered by the great and the terrible way we're made,
Oh, that my eyes could shed these scales,
I can almost make out the shape of a face just beyond the veil.

Closer to the flame,
We drink our cup of pain and it burns us to the bone,
In the fire we find a strength greater than our own, than our own.

And I'm not afraid to admit that I'm afraid,
I'm bewildered by the great and the terrible way we're made,
Oh, that my eyes could shed these scales,
I can almost make out the shape of a face just beyond the veil.

Oh yeah,
Shape of a face,
Ooh, oh,
Just beyond the veil,
Oh now,
The shape of a face,
Shape of a face just beyond the veil,
Yeah, oh,
Oh, just beyond the veil,
Yeah,
Shape of a face,
It's the shape of a face just beyond the veil,
Yeah,
(Etc, fade)
