Heaven Let Your Light Shine Down.
Lyrics by Collective Soul


Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?
Lay me on the ground
And fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?

Have you ever seen
anything
in your life
more wonderful

than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon

and into the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone–
and how it slides again

out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower

streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance–
and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love–
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure

that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you

as you stand there,
empty-handed–
or have you too
turned from this world–

or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?

~ "The Sun" by Mary Oliver ~
