Banner in the Sky

Wave to me, green pastures,
I am no longer asleep,
no longer among your children,
wave to me, green pastures.

Sweep me up, angels on the wind,
wrest me from the Earth,
welcome me as you would the leaf,
sweep me up, angles on the wind.

Weeping Earth, don’t cry for me,
lay me close to the heavens,
place me on this mountain slope,
weeping Earth, don’t cry for me.
