"Sanctuary", and "Abide" by Carrie Newcomer YouTube Music Videos




Refrain

Will you be my refuge
My haven in the storm,
Will you keep the embers warm
When my fire's all but gone?
Will you remember
And bring me sprigs of rosemary,
Be my sanctuary
'Til I can carry on
Carry on.
Carry on.

This one knocked me to the ground.
This one dropped me to my knees.
I should have seen it comin'
But it surprised me.

Refrain

In a state of true believers,
On streets called us and them,
It's gonna take some time
'Til the world feels safe again.

Refrain

You can rest here in Brown Chapel,
Or with a circle of friends,
A quiet grove of trees
Or between two bookends.
Will you be my refuge
My haven in the storm,
Will you keep the embers warm
When my fire's all but gone?
Will you remember
And bring me sprigs of rosemary,
Be my sanctuary
'Til I can carry on
Carry on.
Carry on.

Carry on.


Abide
By Carrie Newcomer

I will bring a cup of water here's the best that I can offer
In the dusk of coming night there is evidence of light.
With the pattering of rain let us bow as if in grace
Consider all the ways we heal and how the heart can break.
Abide with me where its breathless and its empty
Yes abide with me and we'll pass the evening gently.
Stay awake with me and we'll listen more intently
To something wordless and remaining, sure and ever changing In the quietness of now.

Let us ponder the unknown, what is hidden and what's whole
And finally learn to travel at the speed of our own souls.
There is a living water a spirit cutting through
Always changing always bringing all things new
Abide with me where its breathless and its empty
Yes abide with me and we'll pass the evening gently
Stay awake with me and we'll listen more intently
To something wordless and remaining, sure and ever changing in the quietness of now.

There are things that I cannot prove and still somehow I know
Its like a message in a bottle that some unseen hand has thrown.
You don't have to be afraid you don't have to walk alone
I don't know but I suspect that it will feel like home
Abide with me where its breathless and its empty
Yes abide with me and we'll pass the evening gently
Stay awake with me and we'll listen more intently
To something wordless and remaining, sure and ever changing in the quietness of now.
