lyrics

Father, Father, since the day you rescued me
I’ve searched my heart to find the place where you could be
Called your name till I was deafened by the sound
But you were nowhere to be found

Could it be that I am so possessed with sin
You couldn’t find a way for me to let you in
And still you promise that you’re close enough to love
When heaven feels so far above
This present world

Love or fear
Far or near
God in every form appearing
The lion or the lamb
The fire or the ram upon the altar

In my heart I see the tearing of the veil
But in my hands I see the hammer and the nail
No song or sermon did I hear that could explain
Or articulate my pain

When you look upon the faces of the saved
The broken bodies that you gather from the grave
Think of all the saints turned sinners you would find
Without heaven on the line
And hell below

We’re united in the victory that you won
But it’s a strange divided thing that I’ve become
Where half is in the sun and half is in the shade
Half in love and half afraid

In the end I am a creature of desire
Driven always by the flesh into the fire
If all the good in me is given from above
Tell me what it is you love
