From Wikipedia:
Olias of Sunhillow is a progressive rock concept album by Jon Anderson, the lead singer of the band Yes. Released in 1976, it was his first solo album and the most successful of Yes' solo efforts, reaching #8 in the UK charts and breaking into the US Top 50.

The album tells the story of an alien race and their journey to a new world (the story printed in the LP jacket calls it "the earth", lowercase 'e') due to catastrophe. Olias, the title character, is the chosen architect of the glider Moorglade, which will be used to fly his people to their new home. Ranyart is the navigator for the glider, and Qoquaq is the leader who unites the four tribes of Sunhillow to partake in the exodus.

Lyrics:
Hold come a day dream
Ask a flower to kneel
as you pray to the runner

Spurn all ye kindle
and cradle his sweet pleasure
as you just look
farther and farther beyond him,
beyond him, beyond him

Call for the giver, the taker
rejoicing
as you just look
farther and farther beyond him,
beyond him, beyond him

Spurn all ye kindle and cradle his sweet pleasure

In it all
to the devil take
In it all
to the devil take
