Jesus was an only son
His mother Mary walking beside him
Jesus was an only son
As he lay reading the Psalms of David

For I'll be at your side
Shall pierce your dreams this night"
In the garden at Gethsemane
He beseeched his Heavenly Father to remove

A destination that can never be reached
A sea whose distance cannot be breached
Well Jesus kissed his mother's hands
For remember the soul of the universe
