Bless me softly as I enter into your world
I don’t want to be announced or loudly heard
Give me the whisper of water turning into wine
The kiss of your words between my heart and thine
Don’t bring me to brightly outshine another’s star
But lend me soft lights and shaded tents near and far
I have no need of glory or victory in battle
When I have your heart close to mine I can tell
That you’re excited and you’re sweet as sugar underneath
But in the end perhaps you’re wrong to undermine my beliefs
Beauty is as beauty does when she is freely laughing and running
I’m trapped now as surely as a bee who is drowning in honey
So bless me softly as I enter into your world
Don’t demand my song and banners are unfurled
A quiet mind is what I seek my greatest treasure
So I pray for mercy in the last full measure
