Mother of Mysteries Lyrics - Mark Erelli

Mark Erelli Chords




Oh I wish I believed if only for you
In a Sweet Ever After beyond the blue
In an Eternal Father who after the fall
Cast us all out of the garden

Now I've found an Eden I can believe in
Leavened with nothing but time

There is grandeur in this view of life
Where one becomes many through struggle and strife
But the mother of mysteries is another man's call
Why is there something instead of nothing at all
Why is there something instead of nothing at all

If the devil's own chaplain is leading the prayer
From a book that's been written with sorrow and care
Then his hand is indifferent but it isn't unkind
There's no evil design in his sermon

For I hear a chorus of those gone before us
Scored upon pages of stone

(Chorus)

Oh what an utter desert is a life without love
Would that you blessings alone were enough
To banish my doubt in the veil of your tears
Oh my dear how the fabric has fallen

For I've found an Eden I can believe in
Free from the master's design

(Chorus)
