Leonard Cohen - Come Healing (Lyrics)



Come Healing

O gather up the brokenness
And bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow

The splinters that you carry
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

Behold the gates of mercy
In arbitrary space
And none of us deserving
The cruelty or the grace

O solitude of longing
Where love has been confined
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

O see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart

O troubled dust concealing
An undivided love
The heart beneath is teaching
To the broken heart above

Let the heavens falter
Let the earth proclaim
Come healing of the altar
Come healing of the name

O longing of the branches
To lift the little bud
O longing of the arteries
To purify the blood

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

O let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

Be Kind

Whatever kind of world we create for ourselves, we also create for others.
Let us be mindful of our creations. Create beauty. Create goodness. Create Peace.
Be kind.

This Curse of Alone

This weight is heavy.
This heart of mine.
The burden of lonely.
The wastage of time.

I need to run.
I need to hide.
Slow down my tears.
To a gentler tide.

But life is cruel.
More than not fair.
Need someone to love.
Need someone to care.

When will it end?
This curse of alone.
Find me a love.
Find me a home.
