“Lay Your Hands on Me”

~ Peter Gabriel

 “As our blood labors to beget/ Spirits, as like souls as it can,/ Because such fingers need to knit/ That subtle knot, which makes us man;/ So must pure lovers’ soul descend/ To affections, and to faculties/ Which sense may reach and apprehend,/ Else a great prince in prison lies./ To our bodies turn we then, that so/ Weak men on love revealed may look;/ Love’s mysteries in souls do grow,/ But yet – the body is his book./ And if some lover, such as we,/ Have heard this dialogue of one,/ Let him still mark us, he shall see/ Small change when we’re to bodies gone.”

                                        John Donne
