I made my way to the crystal mountain
reverent Jimmy led the prayer
he stood before the sacred altar
and the god they locked in there
when the chorus came I was blown away
the hallelujahs rang out loud
the godly voices joined the hymn
the minister’s head was bowed
the hallelujahs filled the night
as the chorus hit the verse
the collection plate made the rounds
donations for the parish purse
now I know I’m not a religious girl
my god is the one within
so I don’t need to pay for a vicar
for only religion has sin
but since music has a special cord
that eases troubled hearts
then perhaps that is enough reward
for that’s where the healing starts
I made my way to the crystal mountain
reverent Jimmy led the prayer
he stood before the sacred altar
and the god they locked in there
