Lyrics
By Harold Cook
 
I
YOUR hands—
Lilies of white flame!
Your hands
That knew …
 
But now,        5
Crossed thus
And cold,
They are more beautiful
Than eucharist lilies cooled with snow.
 
II
All day her hair lay spread upon the grass
        10
      Where winds pass;
      (I could not pass).
 
And now,
Here in the midst of heaven—
In this music room,        15
God’s resting room—
Above angelic singing
Through my heart will pass
This memory, this song:
 
All day her hair lay spread upon the grass        20
      Where winds pass;
      (I could not pass).
