Evangelina

Evangelina
Evangelina
Avenging angel
Sweet nemesis

Serafina
Serafina
Guardian angel
And exegesis

If you could not bear the pain
If you could not face the shame
To step into your birth-right
And expose your inner light
 And show your inner light
  And show your inner light
   And show your inner light

Evangelina
Evangelina
She cuts right through
The tangled wires

Serafina
Serafina
Initiation 
By fire

If you could not fall any more
When you were huddled on the floor
If you were old before your youth
So shy of your golden truth
 Your wonderful golden truth
  Your beautiful golden truth
   Your amazing golden truth

Evangelina
Evangelina
Executioner 
Of my pride

Serafina
Serafina
Kiss of life
Cosmic bride

I heard you sing my name
And I ran out into the rain
Has my merciful moment arrived?
Shall I be taken into the skies?
 Shall I finally end my wait?
  Shall I finally see your face?
   Shall I finally know Thy grace?

Can I eternally feel you there?
 Can I eternally rest in you?
  Can I finally live in you?
   Can I finally be your prayer?

Can I finally be your prayer?
 Can I finally be your prayer?
  Can I finally be your prayer?
   Can I finally be your prayer?
