A song about life

lyrics

When words like ashes fall
On this war-torn soil
No more healing do I feel
Than if no one spoke at all

These wounds too deep have grown
In my silent speech
For who could save this corpse
By his own word sown

O o oh O o o oh

So I won't sing a song
That you've heard before
But I'll bow my head
While You mend this robe I tore

By what merits am I free
In this leper's skin?
How does a prisoner shed
All he knows to see?

In whose words live the dead?
Pardoned from worm's law
Toward that boon, please swiftly row
Lest I rot long in this bed

O o oh O o oh

So I won't sing a song
That you've heard before
But I'll bow my head
While You mend this robe I tore

Dare I raise a fool's request?
Not with one pence earned
But with desperate need I kneel
Wilst Thou give this sinner rest?

And As poison from me drains
I do find, still warm,
Thine own Word I craved too long
My true home in flesh so slain

How can I sing a song
When His love hath penned
All the world's hope, this
That a Son, Himself would send
