A Citizen of Heaven

A citizen of Heaven among the pillars of Babylon

A citizen of Heaven in Babylon

A citizen of Heaven walks among the pillars of Babylon
A citizen of Heaven stands among the pillars of Babylon

A citizen of Heaven among the pillars of Babylon


Built from the boughs of the cedars of Lebanon

Built from the branches of the cedars of Lebanon

Built by the bows of the backs of the people of Babylon
Built by the bows of the backs of the people in Lebanon
Built on the ashes of the cedars of Lebanon


We built these pillars of Babylon
We built these pillars & Babylon
We hewed the cedars of Lebanon
We broke the branches of Lebanon
We burned the boughs of Lebanon
We raised the pillars of Babylon on the ashes of the cedars of Lebanon
We razed the cedars to build pillars
We raised them to Heaven as monuments to Babylon
We built the tower of Babel on the ashes of Lebanon

We have raised our eyes to the pillars of Babylon
We have raised our eyes upon the pillars of Babylon
We have raised our eyes beyond the pillars of Babylon
To the vaults of Babylon and beyond

We raise our eyes

Our eyes are raised

Gazing eyes

Meet Heaven’s gaze

The pillars that we raised have never scraped the vaults of heaven


I was born a citizen of Babylon

I bowed my back in Babylon

I bowed my back to break branches
and to burn boughs
I bowed my back to build the pillars of Babylon
to raze the cedars of Lebanon
to raise the pillars of Babylon
To build the tower of Babel on the cedars of Lebanon

I bowed my back under the vaults of Babylon
I raised my eyes upon the pillars of Babylon
I raised my eyes to the vaults of Babylon

I saw the vaults of Babylon raised

I saw the vaults of Babylon razed

Babylon says rebuild but there are no more cedars in Lebanon


The cedars of Lebanon lie razed

but Their seeds still sleep
Their roots run deep

They are rooted in Heaven
Their seeds still sleep

The cedars of Lebanon will wake
The cedars of Lebanon will rise

The cedars of Lebanon will rise among the pillars of Babylon
The cedars of Lebanon will yet grow from the ashes of Babylon


I sit in ashes
I sit in the ashes of Babylon
I sit in the ashes of Lebanon
I sit in ashes among the pillars of Babylon



A citizen of Heaven

There is a citizen of Heaven

There is a citizen of Heaven who sits in Heaven

There is a citizen of Heaven who sits above the pillars of Babylon
Who sits within the vaults of Heaven
Who is exalted in Heaven
Who sits among the cedars of Lebanon

There is a citizen of Heaven, exalted in Heaven, who sits among the cedars of Lebanon

Who stands among the cedars of Lebanon

Who stands among the pillars of Babylon

There is a citizen of Heaven among the pillars of Babylon


I sit in ashes among these pillars of Babylon


Among the pillars of Babylon the citizen of Heaven offers me a hand.


Among the pillars of Babylon the citizen of Heaven offers me a hand!


The citizen of Heaven, exalted in Heaven, in the ashes of Lebanon, among the pillars of Babylon offers me a hand!

I raise my eyes

Among the ashes of Babylon and the ashes of Lebanon I raise my eyes

The citizen of Heaven offers me a hand!

By that hand I rise
By that hand I stand

I stand
I stand

I stand a citizen of Babylon
among its raised pillars
among these rising cedars
I stand a citizen of Babylon raised by the hand of Heaven


I raise my eyes

My eyes are raised

My eyes are raised to Heaven
To the vaults of Heaven
Among the cedars of Lebanon
The new cedars of Lebanon
My eyes are raised to Heaven

To Heaven’s gaze my eyes are raised

To Heaven

I am raised to Heaven


I am raised to Heaven by the citizen of Heaven
By the citizen of Heaven
Above the pillars of Babylon
Above the cedars of Lebanon
In the vaults of Heaven


A citizen of Heaven

There is a citizen of Heaven

By the hand of a citizen of Heaven
I become a citizen of Heaven

A citizen of Heaven among the pillars of Babylon
