So much snow
And everything a sign from You.
For two years
I've tried not to hide from You.

I have known it as
a thousand pains with just
one name.
And You were there,
You gave us all a sign so strange.
Son of God, for a thousand pains
You gave a single aid
Unlike anything we'd prayed.
What is it?

If I die,
Put my body in the earth,
It will tunnel to Jerusalem.
Land of sorrows,
Meet me out beyond all signs.
Or sing me there
in a chariot of fire
sing like the powers in the choir
of God. Holy holy.

I can see into a good land.
I will not forget what You have said.
Take me there because you love me.
Give me Truth to be my bread.
