Auroras Sigh

SATB with piano accompaniment Level: medium Words by Neil Lemke, music by David Kai

Auroras sigh with angel tongues,

light flares across fresh fallen snow,

down ageless halls of time and space

the echoed steps, the blood-streaked face,

the fleeing friends and judgement seat set, all call to us, all call to us all:
