lyrics

Misled, we followed to our graves
Unto death with irreversible haste we raced

Incapable of slowing the pace
If there was a way to undo the sorrow
The misery of lives being undone
To redeem ourselves of the expense that our burden proves

When we could not rise
Cast into the jaws of mortal woe

Time has abandoned us
The herd has been scattered
Pearls cast before swine
Dogs return to their filth
We have abandoned ourselves
What will become of us

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.
He was like someone people turned away from
He was despised, and we did not value Him (HCSB)

But He was pierced because of (by) our transgressions,
crushed because of (by) our iniquities
punishment for our peace was on Him,
and we are healed by His wounds. (HCSB)

We all went astray like sheep;
we all have turned to our own way
In our stead, the man of sorrows
Into the fall of humanity

Kings will shut their mouths because of Him,
For they will see what had not been told them,
 and they will understand what they had not heard (HCSB)

Of a peace that is to come
Of a sorrow that shall be undone
From joy we shall be born
In splendor are we adorned

I am anew
Complete in truth
Something beyond,
when once I was blind
I know nothing more than who I now am
Who I was is dead
And now I can see what is truth by design
When a sheep became a shepherd by a wolf's kiss
You have restored the years
(that) the locusts had eaten
You give and you take away
Who can understand
the incomprehensible
Who can fathom the depths
of certainty beyond death
In the wake of redemption reconciled
In the scope of the eternal
"I am nothing, but truth is everything" (-Lincoln)
"Beauty is truth,
truth beauty--
that is all ye know on earth,
and all ye need to know." (-Keats)
