I went to church looking for You,
But did not find You,
I read every book and scripture,
They spoke of you,
But You were not there,
I spoke with a million men,
They thought they had You,
They would not share You,
At me, they threw stones
And wished me to hell
Under a tree in the shadows
I rested and called out Your Name
And I looked into my heart
And realized,
You were there all along.

Hail to the Queen!
