hazelnut dream

Lent 5 – Year B

hazelnut dream

do it for me
  o priestly king
yes for me
  o kingly priest
high and lifted
  mysterioso
lift me high
  so o so high
and show me mercy
  baking it deep within
so o so deep
  to be never lost
so o so deep
  I'll never need ask
do it for me
  o priestly king
yes for me
  you kingly priest
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
a hazelnut dreams
dreams so deep
a cascade of generations
unmasked arise
from once and always roots
growing through this frail hand
down to magma's heart
bursting up to not burn a bush
flowing onward
"set free, set free"
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
nuts o priest
nuts o king
I am not the least
o hear me sing
justice for not just us
mercy that all may see
creation in a hazelnut

  2. Thanks, Magdalene -

    I did change two lines near the end to more firmly connect it with liberations of old.
