Concerto for Organ and Orchestra Op7 no1 mvt2.
you for all that you have given:
Happiness and terror, love and death,
Agony and pleasure, pulse and breath,
Night's monstrous dreams, by lusts and longings driven,
Knowledge, hope, despair, and ecstasy.
You gave us, us, by pain and passion riven,
One brief, bright burst of need and glory. Yet,
Unsatisfied, we hunger more to be.
