7 Weeks
(Nyffenegger, 2005)

There’s a tree
Down on the shore
He’s older than you and me
He’s survived many storms

Chorus
Look at him now!
Look at him now!
See his face
Feel his breath

The gashes on his bark
Deep as Fraser Valley
He’ll carry them forever
Look at them now
Now show me yours
Do you feel when I touch ‘em
Are they healed up already?
Or do they still hurt?

Chorus

All your enemies
They are gone
All those battles
You have won
Seven weeks
Seven weeks
Seven weeks
Seven weeks
Chorus
