lyrics

Light a candle, little brother
Everything is new today
Pull on your robe of clean, white linen
And pray

With all the saints who’ve gone before us
And all the saints we’ll leave behind
Wade into the water, little brother
And join that line

Don’t be frightened, little brother
Don’t be scared if the water’s over your head
The day of the living is coming
But today, today is the day of the dead

Father, hold my body under
Father, raise my body up
Father, hold my body under
Father, raise my body up
Sister, take care of my body
Sister, take care of my body
Brother, lean on my body
Brother, lean on my body
Mother, hold your son
Mother, hold your son
Mother, hold your son
Mother, hold your son

Father, hold my body under
Father, raise my body up
