Move Me to Crying

Original Swedish Text by Anders Frostenson

Music by Ron Klusmeier
English Translation by Fred Kaan
Tune Name: TERRACE

Lyrics as Poetry

Move me to crying
silence and earth
and to the table,
breaking the bread.Broken your true love,
open your wound,
crying through torment
till we are found.You are the author
come, live in me;
living for others,
I shall be free.
