A sort of prayer, this song is a dialogue between myself and God (as seen through the eyes of Judaic-Christian theology) but is, in truth, addressed to that which is sacred and unnameable within each and every one of us. I would love to share the challenge indicated in its message at this particular time in the history of humankind, at this precise moment of difficulty and questioning, and at Easter :-)

Credits and thanks
In the breathless silence of a forest sanctuary
I dreamed ’twas a cathedral made of living trees
Surrounded by children and their friends, the furred and feathered beasts
I knelt upon the fragrant earth,
And lifting up my eyes, these words came out from me:
- Lonely One, in the junk-yard sky, can You see me praying through the satellites?
- "Take my hand,
(‘thought I heard You say,)
- Save Me! Save Me! Save Me and I’ll save you..."
