Why does the earth have to shake beneath our very feet

To know that each little sign was meant for you and me

But noise from a sea shell is only the world amplified

And that whisper on a faraway wind was the sound of

someone

Just before they died

For you and I.

 

Where and when did it start that long long time ago

There you made us a body with your heart, mind, and soul

With eyes to see and ears to hear your words new

And the voice of a fallen angel was the sound of someone

We both listened to

Yeah, you and I.

 

It began in a garden to only end in the grave

When Death and Hell took over on that dark and gloomy day

Life and Heaven were left behind because we believed

the first lie

And the call of our Lord was the sound of someone

That made us hide

Oh, you and I.

 

Live to slay fellow men and slay the animals to live

Always taking to keep for our own and never thinking to give

The Law of God forgotten to make those of our own

And the witness of our God was the sound of someone

Who left his home

For you and I

 

He left his Father on high to come and free us

By giving his life for the ones he made from the dust

If only our eyes would open and our ears would hear

And that shout for the believers was the sound of someone

We need not fear

No, you and I.

 

It’ll be a new garden when we give up the grave

When Death and Hell’s reign’s over on that bright and sunny

day

Life and Heaven are taken back because we believe the most

high

And the voice of our Lord is the sound of someone

Calling to his bride

Yeah, you and I.

 

Soon the earth will begin to shake beneath our very feet

Please know that each little sign was meant for you and me

But noise from a sea shell was only the world amplified

And that whisper on a faraway wind is the sound of

someone

While they still cry

For you and I.

 

It began in a garden . . .
