Of Flesh

 

Of flesh and blood and bone am I

With sacred breath this vessel filled

Descended from the heights to die

 

Born to live and too soon I die

This mortal soul that is strong-willed

Of flesh and blood and bone am I

 

Preordained from realms on high

Until my seasons are fulfilled

Descended from the heights to die

 

I shall ascend yes I shall fly

To burst into incandescent gild

Of flesh and blood and bone am I

 

In that moment’s splendor I

Shall be inclined to float so thrilled

Descended from the heights to die

 

Neither pain nor tears to cry

Within soft velvet night instilled

Of flesh and blood and bone am I

Descended from the heights to die
