She has a smile on her face
She has a name like a flower
Her laughter is music and grace
That comes from mysterious power

Elya will tell about Jesus
To children behind iron walls
Where truth is forbidden
And sentenced to prison
Her country believes what is false

Elya will teach them to sing
Elya will teach them to pray
And the love that she’s giving to children
Will never die

Elya you must not give in
Elya you know you will win
You’ve planted your seeds on the ground
And they’ll reach to the sky

Her bible is stained with her tears
Under the bed where she hides it
She comforts her mother from fears
And they pray every night no one finds it

Elya spent years in the prison
For teaching the children the way
They tried to break her
But nothing could shake her,
They can’t take the Spirit away

Elya will teach them to sing
Elya will teach them to pray
And the love that she’s giving to children
Will never die

Elya you must not give in
Elya you know you will win
You’ve planted your seeds on the ground
And they’ll reach to the sky

You’ve planted your seeds on the ground
And they’ll reach to the sky (x2)
