I Know Of a Place

I Know of a place, where people go to pray

They sing, dance, they listened, they learned

In search for peace, they engage in praise

Worships, Cries, it goes on till the end

 

 

I knew this place, I went there

It was filled with people of so many kinds

They waited for blessings, they hoped it was near

Miracles, testimonies, wonders and signs

 

 

I have known this place, for quite some time

Its songs, teachings, Its hymns, its laws

So did the people, who also gave their life

Their Service, tithes, their offerings, their all

 

 

I thought I knew this place, but I'm not so sure

The preachings, practices, many things feels wrong

The people with nothing, gave all, still poor

Gave to the pastors, priests, the Church, the Lord.

 

 

I don't know this place, not anymore

The teachings, laws, the people, the priests

Changed from everything they were before

Lost the grace, faith, the joy, the peace.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
