Olive Hill

Once upon a lightning horse
Riding through the universe
Shedding light upon a thousand doors
Time stood still
On the Olive Hill
On his back, the Prophet sat
Open-eyed, not looking back
Till they reached the sacred land
Time stood still
On the Olive Hill
There upon a Golden Square
All the Prophets joined in prayer
And the stars fell silent everywhere
Time stood still
On the Olive Hill
Then the Heavenly Ascent
Past the place where no soul went
This one soul was welcomed in
Time stood still
On the Olive Hill
Then the tale began to spread
Some would say, ‘He’s lost his head’,
But for those who trusted
Light would spill
Around the Olive Hill
