Testimony (Ferron)

There's godlike And warlike And strong Like only some show And there's sad like And madlike And had Like we know But by my life be I spirit And by my heart be I woman And by my eyes be I open And by my hands be I whole They say slowly Brings the least shock But no matter how slow I walk There are traces Empty spaces And doors and doors of locks But by my life be I spirit And by my heart be I woman And by my eyes be I open And by my hands be I whole You young ones You're the next ones And I hope you choose it well Though you try hard You may fall prey To the jaded jewel But by your lives be you spirit And by your hearts be you women And by your eyes be you open And by your hands be you whole Listen, there are waters Hidden from us In the maze we find them still We'll take you to them You take your young ones May they take their own in turn But by our lives be you spirit And by our hearts be you women And by our eyes be you open And by our hands be you whole
