Brian Douglas Phillips - Thief Of The Night lyrics

I heard that hammer fall through the rain
The thunder of heaven's reckoning day
A beckoning chime
A swallowing tide
A whispering voice a-callin' my name

I feel the shadows crawlin' in slow
I seen the Ghost out harvestin' bones
He'll sing o'er their graves
And steal them away
Lord, there ain't no place sweeter than home

Cradle my soul, oh thief of the night
Shackle my own hand safe unto thine
Awaken my eyes, Lord,
Severe my ties, oh
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind

Break all the chains been holdin' me down
Ready them gates with pearls all around
There's streets made of gold
In Glory, I'm told
I swear, I can see us walkin' 'em now

I want to gaze on Heaven's glass seas
But, oh, how the blade cuts heavy and deep
My body is tired,
But I can't move my mind
From this broken old land I can't bear to leave

Cradle my soul, oh thief of the night
Shackle my own hand safe unto thine
Awaken my eyes, Lord,
Severe my ties, oh
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind

Cradle my soul, oh thief of the night
Shackle my own hand safe unto thine
Awaken my eyes, Lord,
Severe my ties, oh
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind
Jesus, but leave my spirit behind
