Holy Water

I have walked on water
When the water turned to ice
Through a blizzard of forgiveness
To a frozen paradise
I have heard the voices
Of saints inside my ear
Like the last words of a prophet
That are just to faint to hear
The holy water rises
In cloudy ancient eyes
And rains down on forever
Like a thousand sad goodbyes
And the songs of all the angels
Fly on mystic spirit wings
Over knowledge, rhyme and reason
Over every earthly thing
Turn the water into wine
Turn the wine into blood
Turn the blood into forgiveness
Turn forgiveness into love
