"You are the sun guarding your throne," Madonna (will eventually) sing on the forthcoming track.

Madonna is having some fun teasing her new song "Messiah" on Instagram: a week after posting some sheet music from the track and a snippet of an orchestra performing the song, Madge has now unveiled a handful of lyrics from the hopefully-forthcoming track.

Based on these lyrics, Madonna's "Messiah" is going to be a mystical affair, with "the angels," "the moon," "the sun," and "the sorceress" all making these verses read especially Bjork-y. The caption for the Instagram post goes, "Salvation through  Art! #heart #messiah #livingforlove."

Madonna has been working on the follow-up to 2012's "MDNA" with a slew of collaborators, including Natalia Kills, Martin Kierszenbaum, Diplo and Toby Gad. A title and release date for the album have yet to be announced, and "Messiah" does not have a release date either.
