Standing on Serpents:

into flesh
first light of earth
breath, sweet breath
all things we touch
and our eyes can see
the colors of earth
so we crawl to rise
to our feet

into flesh
first light of earth
lost, we forget
our place in the stars
and our eyes
can't see
the beauty of earth
so we crawl to rise
to our feet
bow low to rise
to Your feet

I hear you still calling
a slight of hand so clear to me
but my love it only rises
you whisper straight to me
and try to steal my love away
but I know you know, I know you now.

I stand on
the heads of
serpents, ascending rising
above all
your demons
like those that would cling to
His resurrecting body
your power, it weakens
in me
