Sufjan Stevens – Ursa Major Lyrics

Ursa Major By Sufjan Stevens

For the love of God
In the shade of Ursa Major
For the life of me, I
Can’t account for human nature

For your information
I’m not one for controversy
So I ask forgiveness now
Lord, reveal Yourself in mercy

Call off all emergency and
Look at things the way I see them
For the beauty of the Earth
It shows us wisdom, love, and rebirth

I wanna love You, I wanna love You
Until the Earth runs through it
I wanna love You, I wanna love You
And I’m definitely gonna do it

For the love of mercy
In the face of all this danger
For the most of all my life
I feel as if I were a stranger

And all the consequences
From the throes of our persuasion
Lord, I ask for patience now
Call off all of Your invasion

There is beauty where I see it
Everywhere that I can feel it
I am on the verge of sorrow
Tell me, Lord, which road to follow

I wanna love You, I wanna love You
Until the Earth runs through it
I wanna love You, I wanna love You
And I’m definitely gonna do it

I wanna love You, I wanna love You
Until the Earth runs through it
I wanna love You, I wanna love You
And I’m definitely gonna do it
