The Voice Across the Moors lyrics
The Voice Across the Moors
ST. JOHN RIVERS
In the light of the virgin evening
In the vale of a midnight blue
God has seen I'm at last rewarded
He has sent me to you
And I hear His divine commandments
And I sail His celestial sea
In the harmony of the heavens
He's proclaimed to me
Jane, you must be a missionary wife
Jane, you will have a visionary life
The rock of ages is yours to lean on
Jane, you were formed
For labour, not love
Jane, show your faith
In the heavens above
For now I claim you
In holy marriage
Marry me, Jane Eyre. Let God and time show us the worth of our love.
If it were God's will I should marry you, I could vow to it here and now!
Then pray. Pray for His guidance. He will show you the way.
What can I do now, my precious Lord?
Would this union be my best reward?
Is this why I've landed here
Frozen on his doorstep?
Is this part of your eternal plan?
Deep in my secret soul
Oh God, I pray
Show me the road to take
And light my way
Give me a sign, my Lord
And I will promise to obey
I'll go with him as his wife
If it's Your will, I'll obey
Oh, God! What is it?
Jane, Jane, Jane...
Edward! Edward! Where are you?
Jane, what is it? What do you hear?
Edward! Where are you? Wait for me!
I hear your cherished voice
Across the moorland skies
