Video: If It Be Your Will

Named for the album “First We Take Manhattan,” Milwaukee musicians honored the late Leonard Cohen with a special concert.

“First We Take Milwaukee – A Tribute to Leonard Cohen” was held at Shank Hall on January 6 with proceeds going to American Red Cross. This song “If it be your will” was performed by legendary musician Bill Camplin in front of a full house.

"If It Be Your Will" Lyrics

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will
If it be your will
That a voice be true
From this broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well

And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be your will

If it be your will.
