Lyrics

A large crowd had gathered in the orchard on the hill

Illuminated by the moon, anticipation growing

Waiting the arrival of a prophecy fulfilled

Singing to the flutist playing around the fire glowing

About the time the dancing gypsy dropped her tambourine

A blind man on the stone, he pointed with his cane

Emerging from the dark, a girl, the first he’d seen

Instructs the crowd to all sit down

Her muddy rags become a gown

Slowly, she begins to explain

 

Refrain: “I am not the one that you’re waiting for

I have been sent to forewarn

So, I’ll make it short:

What he’ll teach, they’ll distort with their faulty lies

I apologize

This is the Gospel, according to those who believe

Live the creed: Be it love, love be it”

 

Thus, the word of God from this messenger he sent

Slowly rising from the ground, she went on to tell her story

Soon the chosen one would come to take embodiment

Of the love that he’ll embed into his allegories

But future generations will lose touch and they’ll reform

Claiming if you’re different you are someone to condone

What’s it to you?

No harm done in refusing to confirm

There’s not a perfect one among us, drop your stones

Alleluia (refrain)

 

Old man time, if you don’t mind

I’d like the past you placed behind

Help me help them

 

Though his time is drawing nearer

Here to paint the picture clearer

 

This is the Gospel, according to those who believe

Live the creed: Be it love, love be it
