Lisa Hannigan – On Love chords

[Verse 1]
Am C AmWhen love beckons to you, Follow him
Am F CThough his ways are hard and steep
Dm F CAnd when his wings enfold you, yield to him
Dm F CThough he hides a sword among them
Am C AmAnd when he speaks to you, believe in him
Dm F CThough his voice may shatter your dreams
F CLove will crown and crucify you
F CSo for your growth so he is for your pruning
F CLove will caress your tenderest branches
Dm FAnd shake every clinging root
[Verse 2]
Am F CLike sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself
Am F C AmHe threshes and sifts you, he grinds and he kneads you
Dm F CAnd then he assigns you to his sacred fire
Dm F CThat you may become sacred bread for god’s sacred feast
F CAll these things shall love do unto you
F CThat you may know the secrets of your heart
F CAnd in that knowledge become a fragment
Dm FA fragment of love’s heart
[Verse 3]
Am F CNow if in your fear you seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure
Am F CBetter cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor
Dm F CInto seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all your laughter
Dm F Cand weep, and weep, but not all of your tears
F CLove gives naught but itself
F Cand takes naught but from itself
F CLove possesses not nor would be possessed
Dm FFor love is enough
Am FYou should say I am in the heart of God
Am CYou cannot direct the course of love
Am F CLove it finds you worthy, it directs your course
F CTo wake at dawn with a winged heart
F CTo come home in the evening with gratitude
F CAnd to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
Dm FAnd a song of praise on your lips
