Sudden Heaven

from the album "Fearful Symmetry"

Words by Terry Taylor
Music by Terry Taylor and Greg Flesch
1986 Broken Songs (ASCAP)
Familiar scene, no dream, I look
'Cross hills of green and woodland brook

Then, pulse for pulse
The Will speaks soft and low
On waves of joy the sweet and tearful flow

Sudden heaven has blazed on me
Sudden heaven has blazed on me
I am taken up
I am shaken up (sudden heaven)
Where the angels praise
In the brilliant daze (sudden heaven)
Sudden heaven has blazed on me

Black map of woe, dark hungry night
Here in my soul I stop the flight

The ivy taps upon the window pane
I won't resist the One who calls again
Sudden heaven has blazed on me
Sudden heaven has blazed on me

Bliss too great to tell
Bright with miracle (sudden heaven)
As it would ever be
Safe, forever free (sudden heaven)
Sudden heaven has blazed on me

My Lord, how long will heaven keep
The days beyond the midnight sleep?

Sudden heaven has blazed on me, yeah
Sudden heaven has blazed on me, yeah
Blazed on me, yeah
