about

Based on 'The Bright Field' by R.S. Thomas

lyrics

The Bright Field

I saw a small field illuminated by the sun
Breaking through clouds for just a short while then was gone
I went on walking and forgot it and time moved on
But there was treasure in it now I must have it for my own

The bright field shining for a moment in the sun
The bright field reminding us that we and God are one

I would give all I have to own this jewel unsurpassed
Witnessing the moment not the future or the past
To turn aside like Moses to the lit bush burning fast
To know the brightness once thought wasted is your fate at last

The bright field shining for a moment in the sun
The bright field reminding us that we and God are one

It passed as quickly as your youth
Now you know its truth
The eternity awaiting you
