MOMENTS OF SOFT PERSUASION Lyrics

Artist: Peter, Paul & Mary
Album: Late Again

Moments of the soft persuasion
Chiming bells, the first occasion
Tell the rest a smile awaken
Till the last reminder shaken
From whatever rude and sorrow;
Now, the time is now-tomorrow.

Chorus:
In the instant of remaking
Just the giving of the taking
In the instant of the living
Just the taking of the giving

Nothing more than earth and water
Smiles of Spring from barren daughter
Who at last in perfect motion
Turning 'round embrace the ocean
Gracious calf of mankind suffering;
Sacrifice of old is ending.

(Chorus)

Moments of the soft persuasion
Chiming bells, the first occasion
Tell the rest a smile awaken
Till the last reminder shaken
From whatever rude and sorrow;
Now, the time is now-tomorrow.
