I stand outside the fortress
a weed I sprout in fear
voices jangle, I try to hide
my head rattles ear to ear.
Have I lost my mind to thinkthe splinters would dissolve
how you pierced my heart again
a skewed image I can’t absolve?
And I was on my kneesand I was crying out to you
seeking redemption, forgiveness
within this tainted view.
A cloak I felt enwrap mepick me up, carry me in
a vision I won’t long forget
the day you freed me from all sin.
