To Understand

1970's ?

To understand
Would take such time
The words so perfect
The mood so pure
The wind so still
There is no such place given to me
Where darkness won't spy
Where doubt doesn't shy
Such sacred places aren't there for me.

So surrender to the truth
Within your heart
Let the truth run through your veins
Accept the ways of this God
Be its heart
Feed its needs
Look for it... call its name
Ask yourself every day
Where the truth will be today

It is not dressed in shrouds
It is not dressed in vestments
It is in wedding clothes
Something shared between you and me
Everyone knows
But nobody says.
