This is where your sleepless eyes will close.
This is where the weary find repose.
This is where a kinder bugle blows.
This is where you'll wake,
To find the river, Jordan, flows.

Scarlet nights, waiting sleep, is overdue.
Scarlet nights, ending here on in, they're blue.
Yes, I know we're not saying goodbye.
Yes, I know that farewell don't apply.
Yes, I know no matter how I try

Yes, I know, and you should know,
That all the same I'll cry.
Scarlet nights, waiting sleep, is overdue.
Scarlet nights, ending here on in, they're blue.

Blue as skies and blue as heavens.
Watching over Galilee and Rome.
Blue as water, Jordan's waters.
Blue as dawn and dawn will take you home.
Scarlet nights, waiting sleep, is overdue.
Scarlet nights, ending here on in, they're blue.

Blue as skies and blue as heavens.
Watching over you.
Blue as water, Jordan's water.
Washing over you.
