Oh, Sister

Oh, sister, when I come to lie in your arms

You should not treat me like a stranger.

Our Father would not like the way that you act

And you must realize the danger.

.

Oh, sister, am I not a brother to you

And one deserving of affection?

And is our purpose not the same on this earth,

To love and follow his direction?

.

We grew up together

From the cradle to the grave

We died and were reborn

And then mysteriously saved.

.

Oh, sister, when I come to knock on your door,

Don't turn away, you'll create sorrow.

Time is an ocean but it ends at the shore

You may not see me tomorrow.

.
