The Ancient Modern
Theotokion / Joshua Alan Sturgill
Who am I, that I should be a scholar?
There are no windows within me, only doors
Gracious Mother, mystic rose
Teach my heart what your heart knows
Who am I, that I should attempt to guide?
There are only clearings within me, no paths
Nuestra Señora, mystic rose
Lead my heart where your heart goes
Who am I, that I should be a priest?
Yet I beg for the union of earth and heaven
Untouched Mountain, mystic rose
What you open, none can close
All things are veiled unveilings. Who am I
that I should become an Icon of God?
Theotokos, mystic rose
What was hidden, your Word shows
