Music of Anarchy – Leonard Cohen “Come Healing”

Psycho Kid

I was out on my porch having a smoke yesterday, and the church around the corner was playing their usual Sunday song list – or so I thought. I seriously love having a church in the neighborhood, just to listen to their music, and what I heard them playing this Sunday, makes me love it even more. As I stood there, I realized the song that was being played was none other than “Come Healing”, which was done by Leonard Cohen for Sons of Anarchy Season 6, Episode 1 – “Straw”. Check out the lyrics and take a listen below:

O gather up the brokenness
And bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow

The splinters that you carry
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

Behold the gates of mercy
In arbitrary space
And none of us deserving
The cruelty or the grace

O solitude of longing
Where love has been confined
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

O see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart

O troubled dust concealing
An undivided love
The Heart beneath is teaching
To the broken Heart above

O let the heavens falter
And let the earth proclaim:
Come healing of the Altar
Come healing of the Name

O longing of the branches
To lift the little bud
O longing of the arteries
To purify the blood

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb

O let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb
