To Spring is the third part of the ¡Vicuña! song cycle where the subsequent movement relies on two altered loops of its immediate predecessor. Because they are looped live, the three parts must always be performed in numerical order.


Old regrets turned present threats
Fear tears apart what could be built yet
Steel yourself against the past
To your hope hold fast

Do you not see it
I am doing something new
Do you not perceive it
I am making all things new
Do you not feel it
Now spring springs in the wasteland

The tale turns unexpected
Towards hope once neglected
My life reinvented
Disaster circumvented
I am not dwelling on my past failings
Into the new I shall now bloom

Gird yourself for war
Don't remain safe in your cove
You must take heart
There's no time for doubt
You cannot stay fate

Your joy is not in circumstance
Your joy is fighting to the last
There is no glory
There is no gain
If I must lose, if I must lose, if I must lose, if I must lose,
If I must lose
I lose, I lose, I lose without shame

***Many of the lyrics are taken/adapted from/inspired by Isaiah 42:9; Isaiah 43:18-19; Judges 5:17; John 16:33; 2 Timothy 4:7; Philippians 3:8; and Philippians 4:11-12
