In You Shall We Find Rest
King of the Jews, King of my heart My heart longs and aches for your mercies tender Divine, incarnate Spirit sent to save accursed world. Who else, but the Chosen One would deliver me?

Two doves perchèd upon the throne of God Fore'er indebted in wedlock'd bond. True love cannot be measured with a rod. Like ripples on the Lord's celestial pond.
America My Own Interpretation
Life is a winding staircase of endless possibilities It winds in all different directions, twisting turning A long road with many paths to chose Do I dare take the longer road and risk the pain of rejection?
Upon the banks of a peaceful river,
Submerged in the purifying waters as each and everyone is
baptized in the name of the Holy Ghost.
Tranquility of the babbling brook overflowing
Doves descend upon everyone who takes the plunge to follow
The saving waters that have cleansed the souls of men
Forever indebted to the Creator
The beginning, middle and end of what was, is and soon to come
An eternal sacrifice that followers must endure
