 Holy places have boulder, water
God's truly amongst the good
When in the company of Saints
Better to surrender at their feet
Faith bears fruits in holy places
Here the unrestrained is reined in
Tuka says they absolve sins
Let them rid of anguish

Words are the jewels
That our homes are filled with
The tools that we strive with
Are but of words.
Words are the source
That sustains our life
Wealth of words we give
To one and all!
Tuka says behold
Word is the Lord
Let us praise Him
Worship with words!
