Silent as the stars
That sleep in deep dark waters
Her face forever hidden
For she wears the black ribbon
Her face forever hidden

It's from nowhere that I came
And to nowhere I'll return again
And the same fate waits for you my friend
Blessed or forsaken
She wears the black ribbon

Nearest to all things
Patiently waiting
So let the angels sing
Silently weeping
So let the angels sing
It's only heaven descending
It's only heaven descending
It's only heaven descending

Hold her in your arms
Hold her like a lover
More precious than any other
For she bears a heavy burden
And her heart?s forever broken

Nearest to all things
Patiently waiting
So let the angels sing
Silently weeping
So let the angels sing
It's only heaven descending
It's only heaven descending
It's only heaven descending
