Song Of Innocence

from the album "Knowledge and Innocence"

Words and Music by Terry Taylor

A child floating down on a cloud in the sky
Said "Sing me a song 'bout a lamb"
So I sang and he smiled, so I sang again
As he placed a reed in my hand

And with my rural pen I stained the water clear
And wrote this song for every little child to hear

A song of innocence
A song of goodness & light
A song of innocence
A song of goodness & light

Said the child hovering there on his cloud in the sky
"Please sing me the song once again"
And when it was over, he vanished from sight
These are the words sung to him

The One who's meek and mild
you'll find is always near
And I will sing this song
for every child to hear

A song of innocence
(Little lamb, who made thee?)
A song of goodness & light
(Little lamb, I'll tell you)
A song of innocence
(He is called by thy name)
A song of goodness & light
(He became a child, too)

A child floating down on a cloud in the sky
Said "Sing me a song 'bout a lamb"

A song of innocence
A song of goodness & light
A song of innocence
A song of goodness & light

A song of innocence
