Lyrics

Sing my song backwards, from end to beginning,
Friday to Monday, from dying to birth.
Nothing is altered, but hope changes everything:
sing “Resurrection!” and “Peace upon Earth!”

Sing my song backwards till all the world sings!

Whisper a hope through the fear in Gethsemane,
horror and emptiness darker than night;
visit the wounds, and the failure of Calvary:
sing “Resurrection!” and bathe them in light.

Sing my song backwards till all the world sings!

Gather the bones and the sinews of memory–
healings and parables, laughter and strife,
joy with the outcasts and love for the enemy–
breathe “Resurrection!” and dance them to life.

Sing my song backwards till all the world sings!

Stretch out a rainbow from cross to nativity.
Deck out the stable with shepherds and kings,
angels and miracles, glory and poetry–
Sing my song backwards till all the world sings!

Sing my song backwards till all the world sings!

!sings world the all till wards back song my Sing
