Maria

Maria
By Holly Tripp

VERSE 1
Maria found a cause to fight
She willed herself into the light
She promised the world she’d bring them something better
But she fell onto her knees one night
She raised her hands, she raised her life
She cried, “Lord, I’ve been singing all these songs for nothing!”

CHORUS
She came to me in my dreams
To trade me for my warmth and peace
She came to me in my dreams
To whisper words that I might speak

VERSE 2
She stood out on the ocean side
Stared into the muck and mire
Waiting for the waves to wash it clean
But she had to know just what she’d done
She dove in deep, her fear was gone
And she came back up to sing the Lord a new song

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Tears of joy fell like rain,
Black as night they brought her fame
She bore the cure of words to save an unspoken few
We couldn’t hear before we knew
Maria sent a guardian too
So we could always hear her sing

She came to me in my dreams
To trade me for my warmth and peace
She came to me in my dreams
To sing for me her new song
