Lyrics to Psalm

Lyrics to the song Psalm as recorded by Roxy Music.


Try on your love like a new dress
The fit and the cut your friends to impress
Try on your smile square on your face
Showing affection should be no disgrace
Try out your God hope He will send
Kindness from strangers on whom you depend
Try on His coat a mantle most fine
Myriad colours His harmony-thine
"Believe in me"
Once seemed a good line now belief in Jesus
Is faith more sublime head in the clouds
But I can't see the Lord short of perfection
I'll try to be good I'll stand at His gate
I'll wait for His sign then I'll walk in His garden
When it's my time drink from His cup
Hush now don't you cry His quiet waters
Will never never run dry nearing death's vale
He's here by my side He leads me to paradise
A mountain so high

Don't be afraid just treasure His word
Singing His praises I know that I'll be heard
He's gonna take you by the hand He's gonna make you feel so good
Open up your eyes and then you'll see all that you should yeah
Forget all your troubles you will feel no pain
He's all that you need He's your everything
When I'm feeling all at sea deliverance is that distant shore
I will not be worried someday His house will be my home

For evermore for evermore for evermore for evermore
For evermore for evermore for evermore for evermore
For evermore for evermore for evermore for evermore
