And when I shall be holy

And when I shall be holy like Moses in Sinai
Forty nights and days
The Lord will show me a book of Torah
Secrets and mysteries
My eyes will race through the book
Your mercy will come unto me and I shall live
Amen


Torah
The Law which the Lord gave Moses in Sinai; the first division of the Jewish Bible; the literal meaning of the Hebrew word is teaching.
