She walked
Like every step
Meant something more than the one before

A pride
A lion
A goddess, a guide
– into the light

Take me on the hunt
I promise not to hide

She looked like dreams come true
A bridge to the great divide

We don’t deserve her
The majesty, the grace
The walk, her otherworldly pace

Make us over
Walk us into the promise land
And cure us of impurities before we stand
In your grace, the grace of God

Deliver us from evil
You are our bread
From which life flows
From which blood grows

And she walks
On and on
And within
The music, the spirit
The scene

Our afternoon dream
