All the Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands
Sufjan Stevens Lyrics


If I am alive this time next year
Will I have arrived in time to share?
And mine is about as good this far
And I'm still applied to what you are

And I am joining all my thoughts to you
And I'm preparing every part for you

(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)
(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)

And I heard from the trees a great parade
And I heard from the hills a band was made
And will I be invited to the sound?
And will I be a part of what you've made?

And I am throwing all my thoughts away
And I'm destroying every bet I've made
And I am joining all my thoughts to you
And I'm preparing every part for you
For you

(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)
(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)
(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)
(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)
(Ta la, ta la la la ta, ta la la)

If I am alive this time next year,
Will I have arrived in time to share?
Mine is about as good this far.
I'm still applied to what you are.
And I am joining all my thoughts to you.
And I'm preparing every part for you.

I heard from the trees a great parade.
And I heard from the hills a band was made.
Will I be invited to the sound?
Will I be a part of what you've made?
And I am throwing all my thoughts away.
And I'm destroying every bet I've made.
And I am joining all my thoughts to you.
And I'm preparing every part for you.

And will I be a part of what you've made?

And I am throwing all my thoughts away
And I'm destroying every bet I've made
And I am joining all my thoughts to you
And I'm preparing every part for you
For you

This is crazy; I just realized that at least 10 of Sufjan's songs are my all time favorites.

Death with dignity?
Eugene? Mystery of love? These are some of them right?

The title comes from Isaiah 55:12-
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands

@Oliver Popenoe this whole album is about religion more or less, but its up to everyone tbh, idk if I'd agree with your take even as an agnostic lol

Turtleproof

Was just thinking about how devout he is to a religion whose cohorts would burn him at the stake if they caught him.

Frans Koster

@Oliver Popenoe Dude Sufjan constantly uses biblical imagery and has been pretty open about the role faith plays to him. This song is neither religious nor atheistic - it's a song.

Aline Souza

Never knew that. Thank you so much.

Hayle Barbour

I'm so touched by your comment it brought so much more meaning to this song to me.
