So We Go

Recording of "So We Go"

This hymn (sheet music is available) was written as a Celtic-style harvest song.

Come as the summer turns t'ward autumn;
Come as the long-night stars climb high'r.
Come as time's unceasing turning
Wheels us 'round 'round the harvest fire.

Chorus:
So we go
From daylight toward the night.
So we go,
Turning on through life.

Come as the sun turns bearded barley
From soft green to a brazen bronze.
Come as the sunflow'rs rest their heads
In the peace of sleep while the sun spins on. (chorus)

Come as mistakes turn into wisdom;
Come as the rash become the sage.
Come as the blooms of youth grow into
The feast and seed of our autumn days. (chorus)
