Leonard Cohen - The Land Of Plenty Lyrics




Don’t really know who sent me
To raise my voice and say:
May the lights in The Land of Plenty
Shine on the truth some day.

I don’t know why I come here,
Knowing as I do,
What you really think of me,
What I really think of you.

For the millions in a prison,
That wealth has set apart –
For the Christ who has not risen,
From the caverns of the heart –

For the innermost decision,
That we cannot but obey -
For what’s left of our religion,
I lift my voice and pray:
May the lights in The Land of Plenty
Shine on the truth some day.

I know I said I’d meet you,
I’d meet you at the store,
But I can’t buy it, baby.
I can’t buy it anymore.

And I don’t really know who sent me,
To raise my voice and say:
May the lights in The Land of Plenty
Shine on the truth some day.

I don’t know why I come here,
knowing as I do,
what you really think of me,
what I really think of you.

For the innermost decision
That we cannot but obey
For what’s left of our religion
I lift my voice and pray:
May the lights in The Land of Plenty
Shine on the truth some day.

  7. G&T DEMOs

    My sincere thanks for the poetry and music he wrote, the biblical landscape he walked, the love, desire and faith he shared, the inhuman generosity he was touched by and his hand that reached out to mine. Rest in peace. My tribute to Leonard Cohen can be found at YouTube: G&T - Renaissance Man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YD6fvzGIBfQ
