From the recording The Sacrifice
Shadows fall in the garden as I try to pray and think I hear the call blood for pardon, this is the cup I am to drink Though I see the doubt around me, I will never give For I know if I don't die, they will never live
Chorus Slap my face, accuse me falsely, sentence me to die Crown my head and whip me deadly. Can you tell me why? Stretch me out and nail me down. A cross then did I earn? Be prepared I shall arise, and I will return.
I speak to all some wear a frown as I preach the blood of Christ They've built a wall that must come down. A prideful heart brings such a price Though I see the fight around me, I know I must forgive. For I know that when I die, I forever live!
Bridge Beautiful are the feet of him who brings good news Why hate the messenger who comes? Because it makes you choose!
