Rainbow Temple Of The King Lyrics

Last updated: 08/01/2012 02:48:58 PM

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
Meant the time had cometh
For one to go
To the temple of the king

There in the middle of the circle he stands
Searching, seeking
With just one touch of his trembling hand
The answer will be found

Daylight waits while the old man sings
Heaven help me
And then like the rush of a thousand wings
It shines upon the one
And the day had just begun

One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to sing
It meant the time had cometh
For one to go
To the temple of the king

There in the middle of the people
He stands
Seeing, feeling
With just a wave of a strong right hand
He's gone
To the temple of the king

Far from the circle at the edge of the world
He's hoping, wondering
Thinking back from the stories he's heard
Of what he's going to see

There in middle of the circle it lies
Heaven help me
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
The answer had been found

Back with the people in the circle
He stands
Giving, feeling
With just one touch of a strong right hand
They know
Of the temple and the king

my fiance bought this cd a couple months before he was killed on his motorcycle. That summer i had two little red foxes that took up residence on my little 3 acre farm and i was delighted and so was he. I got his music collection and put this disk in, never hearing it before, and the song struck a chord right into my soul with the whole "year of the fox" and that he had passed and this was the sequential order of him knowing that he had passed from this life and my finding the music was his gift to me of comfort in song, since he knew i always sought refuge in music.
