Sangre De Cristo

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Hart, Jenkins, Welnick, Hussain, Hidalgo

Sangre de Cristo
Sangre de Cristo
Sangre de Cristo
Send down the rain
Sangre de Cristo
You great red mountain chain
Send down your waters
Cure the pain
Sangre de Cristo
Bring down the rain

Give us this moment
Roll with the blow
Give us this moment
All creatures here below
Send down your water
Flood the plain
Sing us a love song
Shafts of lightning
Split the clouds in two
Send down the rain

Give us this moment
Run with the day
Give us this moment
Show us a better way
Halfway to Heaven
Call your name
Sangre de Cristo
Bring down the rain

Give us this moment
Roll with the blow
Give us this moment
All creatures here below
Give us this moment
We pray
Give us a chance to say
All we need to say about love
And then get out of the way

High on the mountain
The sun rides low
Last shades of twilight
Red mountain white with snow
This is the moment
This is the land
This is our moment
Where do we stand?

Give us this moment
Roll with the blow
Give us this moment
All creatures here below
Give us this moment
To understand
Sangre de Cristo
Where do we go from here?

Sangre de Cristo
Send down the rain
Sangre de Cristo
Send down the rain
Sangre de Cristo
Send down the rain
Sangre de Cristo
Send down the rain
