the resurrection of the body / the life everlasting

oh mama mary, we’ve been waiting
for your boy to come so long
and i know you are, too
your bones long lying in the grave

john laid them down after
loving you like a son
and then wrote about his Master’s
coming back to raise them up

to earth’s womb we all must go
though we have already been born again
we will be reborn and reborn every day
until that great morning

oh, but mama mary, i will not ask you to pray for us
there’s too much on your mind
so i’ll pray along with you–
peace. peace. peace.
