Abraham's Daughter

Album: The Hunger Games Soundtrack (2012)
  • Abraham took Isaac's hand
    And led him to the lonesome hill
    While his daughter hid and watched
    She dare not breathe, she was so still
    Just as an angel cried for the slaughter
    Abraham's daughter raised her voice

    Then the angel asked her what her name was
    She said, I have none
    Then he asked, how can this be
    My father never gave me one

    And when he saw her, raised for the slaughter
    Abraham's daughter raised her bow
    How dearest you, child, defy your father
    You'd better let young Isaac goWriter/s: REGINE CHASSAGNE, T-BONE BURNETT, WIN BUTLER
