I noticed there isn't a lyrics thread for this one yet. Here are the official lyrics, but I have changed them a bit with what I can hear.

oh angel sent from up above
you know you make my world light up
when I was down, when I was hurt
you came to lift me up

life is a drink and love’s a drug
oh now I think I must be miles up
when I was a river dried up
you came to rain a flood

you said ‘drink from me, drink from me’
when I was so thirsty
poured on a symphony
now I just can’t get enough
put your wings on me, wings on me
when I was so heavy
poured on a symphony
when I’m low low low low

I oh I oh I
got me feeling drunk and high
so high so high
oh I oh I oh I
now I’m feeling drunk and high
so high so high

oh angel sent from up above
I feel you coursing through my blood
life is a drink and your love’s about
to make the stars come out

put your wings on me, wings on me
when I was so heavy
poured on a symphony
when I’m low low low low

I oh I oh I
you got me feeling drunk and high
so high so high
oh I oh I oh I
now I’m feeling drunk and high
so high so high

I oh I oh I
la la la la la la la
so high so high

oh I oh I oh I
now I’m feeling drunk and high
so high so high
that I shoot across the sky
that I shoot across the
that I shoot across the sky
that I shoot across the
(that I shoot across)
That I shoot across the sky
Let me shoot across the
Let my shoot across the sky
Let me shoot across the

By the way, I also hear some "noise" at about 4:04" - 4:05". Anyone who can decipher that ? :D

And on 00:28 she seems to say something like "it was all about".

Indecipherable to my ears...but I think mostly irrelevant as far as lyrics go. It must be something Beyonce was saying between takes.

This is one of my favorite sounds in the song actually! haha It sounds like a guitar sound being cut off abruptly, but not sure if its electronic or actually done on the guitar. I like it though, gives the songs a nice rock edge :)

p.s. I just re-listened to this song now with my earphones in full quiet in my room and wow its just such a gorgeous song! Like ahhhhh so good :)

It is funny that they kept it in the recording.

Should have known it probably was a guitar. I thought it was some kind of error in the recording.

And I didn't expect it because I'm not a Beyoncé fan, but for some reason this song is growing on me.

Also, having the lyrics of the songs is helping me out to decypher what Chris is singing about because sometimes he is really mumbling. :)

They kept it because it was in the recording so I guess they didn't have much choice. I remember Chris saying the first part of the song is a mashup of different outtakes Beyoncé did.

I'm hardly a Beyoncé fan myself. I only like one song by her called Halo hehe
Hymn is a 100% Coldplay song imo, Beyoncé really only does guest vocals and totally "submits" to serve the song. I think she did an amazing job!!

And yes what with his British accent, falsetto and mumbling I also often have to read the lyrics to understand what he says!

I just noticed how the ending "that I shoot across the sky" could very well be a reference to "a sky full of stars".
The woman in question is the "sky full of stars" as we already know from the song on GS. On "O fly on" he ends the album wishing that one day he can fly with love (the birds) and now finally he is "shooting across the sky" = he is together with the woman he loves and reunited with love :)
