May your pain and your scars
tell on how strong you are
May your tears tell on how
you will laugh long and hard
In the snow may you know
you will walk in the sand once again
The architect of heaven is also the one
who made your face
I am a minister
of the truest and deepest love
And one day just you watch and see
When the whole world is outside of their houses
and a hard rain comes
I’ll baptize each last soul in love in its purest form.
