cracked and broken voices raise
shattered songs of redemption
to the skies, to the skies
lifted on melting waxen wings
an injured heavy chorus of praise

words weighed down with damp despair
still glint with bright buoyant hope
fragments of wholeness long lost
call to the only one within reach
to welcome return of prodigal prayer

run fast to the healing embrace
that in the crush is found true life realized
