lyrics

The Farmer wiped his brow and bowed his head.
“I fear the frost is coming early,” he said,
“the stink of famine’s finally left the field,
But winter’s nipping closely at our heels.”

The Farmer’s wife rolled over in her bed
Her barren belly swollen longing to be fed.
The fever gripped her in the cold of night.
Her fingers gripped the pillow till her knuckles white.

The Farmer kneeled beside their bed to pray “dear God, teach me what to say.
“With my hands, I tilled the mud, by my sweat, by my blood.
“I was honest, I was fair, but You have lead me to despair.
“so let your servant die in peace and grant a wicked soul release.”

They found the Farmer kneeling in the cold
His beard and hair were white from falling ash and snow.
“So He gives,” he mutters, “so He takes.”
The flaming farmhouse falls before the morning breaks.
