about

a reading for Palm Sunday from the book of The Violent Bear It Away

lyrics

Jesus came on cold straw
Jesus was warmed by the breath of an ox
Who is this blue-cold child
And this woman plain as the winter
Is this the word of God, this blue cold child
Is this His will, this plain winter woman

Love cuts like the cold wind
And the will of God is plain as the winter

Where is the summer will of God
Where are the green seasons of God’s will

Love cuts like the cold wind
And the will of God is plain as the winter

Jesus grew up and raised the dead
The dead are dead and can stay that way
What do we want with the dead alive
The dead are dead and can stay that way

O you people

They nailed him to a cross
They run a spear through his side
Now we can get some peace
Now we can ease our minds

O you people

Jesus is coming again
The stars are going to perch on his shoulder
And when he calls it the sun
Is going to fall like a goose for his feast
If you don’t know him now
You won’t know him then

O you people

Love cuts like the cold wind
And the will of God is plain as the winter
