Sufjan Stevens The Midnight Clear Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It came upon the midnight clear:
That glorious sign of old
Enraptured secret sign of fear
In brave disguises

[Bridge 1]
Old shoes and thirty feet
The prophet sighed of prophecy
I resign to petty things
Like angels bending on their knees

[Chorus]
Do you delight, do you delight in me?
(I laughed about it)
Come to me now, come to me now and bring
(That rapturous moment)
I wasn't changed, I wasn't changed one bit
(Though you may doubt it)
And I don't suppose, I don't suppose you care?
(To ask about it)

[Verse 2]
The dead of winter takes a grip
And moves around us
All night our labors clap and kiss
Like working mothers

[Bridge 2]
Old wounds and thirty feet
The clock it sounds of properties
I resign to glorious things
Like angels bending on their knees

[Chorus]
Do you delight, do you delight in me?
(I laughed about it)
Come to me now, come to me now and bring
(That rapturous moment)
I wasn't changed, I wasn't changed one bit
(Though you may doubt it)
And I don't suppose, I don't suppose you care?
(To ask about it)

[Coda]
I will delight, I will delight in this
(Though you may doubt it)
Come to me now, come to me now, my kiss
(And ask about it)
I will delight, I will delight in this
(Though you may doubt it)
Come to me now, come to me now, my kiss
