"Ballad Of Mary Magdalene" as written by and Richard Shindell....
My name is Mary Magdalene
I come from Palestine
Please excuse these rags I'm in
But I've fallen on hard times but
Long ago I had my work When I was in prime
But I gave it up and all for love
It was his career or mine
Jesus loved me this I know
Why on earth did I ever let him go
He was always faithful
He was always kind
But he walked off with this heart of mine
A love like this comes but once
This I do believe
And I'll not see his like again
As I live and breathe and
I'm sorry if I might offend
But I will never see
How the tenderness I shared with him
Became a heresy
Jesus loved me this I know
Why on earth did I ever let him go
He was always faithful
He was always kind
But he walked off with this heart of mine

I remember nights we spent Whispering our creed
Our rituals our sacrament
The stars our canopy There beneath an olive tree
We'd offer up our plea
God's creation innocent
His arms surrounding me
Jesus loved me this I know
Why on earth did he ever have to go
He was always faithful
He was always kind
But he walked off with this heart of mine
He was always faithful he was always kind
But he walked off with this heart of mine
