  • I hear you breathe so far from here
    I feel your touch so close and real

    And I know my church is not of silver and gold
    Its glory lies beyond judgment of souls
    The commandments are of consolation and warmth

    You know our sacred dream won't fail
    The sanctuary tender and so frail
    The sacrament of love
    The sacrament of warmth is true
    The sacrament is you

    I hear you weep so far from here
    I taste your tears like you're next to me

    And I know my weak prayers are not enough to heal
    The ancient wounds so deep and so dear
    The revelation is of hatred and fear Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
