A Resurrection from the House of Despair

 
I walked silently through the house of despair    
no screaming or shouting  
no whinging or whining  
no tearing of hair Ö †  
just a walk in silence through the house of despair †  
† †
I sense an old thought, more fully aware †  
at a suitable distance †  
I note my resistance †  
and habitís persistence Ö †  
as I sense an old thought, more fully aware †  
† †
On top of a hill, thereís a Man - no longer there †  
heís risen away †  
left the prison today †  
but is it the way †  
on top of a hill, with a Man no longer there? †  
† †
So I look for a sign with a mind that wonít care †  
no pause for a thought †  
or search for a cause †  
no grabbing at straws Ö †  
just look for a sign with a mind that wonít care †  
† †
I spy an old boat with the wind rising fair †  
an outgoing tide †  
that offers a ride †  
from a spark deep inside Ö †  
an old boat with the wind rising fair †  
† †
as decades of darkness from God knows quite where †  
are lifted to lee †  
as a gift of the sea †  
with a man sailing free
from decades of darkness from God knows quite where †  

And it seems thereís a jewel thatís terribly rare
itís there to be found
deep down in the ground
emitting a sound
announcing the jewel thatís terribly rare

For somewhere in heaven weíre given a dare -
you have to begin
the journey within
with nothing to win
but a heaven that gave us the dare
† †
And the only way out of the house of despair †  
is see it right through †  
to a differing view †  
and thank what is true †  
in the journey we took through the house of despair.
