What is His Name?
For the love of money is the root of every evil,
Evil we can't afford, for the wage of sin is lethal/
Eternally fatal, yet consumer culture fables pervade
And train us to obey; inundate us from the cradle/
singing along with pop idol songs,
and chameleon charades on cable/
while deaths serenade plays
captivating lullabies on the radio,
a generation led astray, down the broad way,
children preyed upon like Abel/
Yet who am I to judge? Where is my halo?
Sin pervades my innermost being
affixed to guilt and shame,
and attachments like staples
permeate my heart and make me hateful/
The bleeding crimson stain spreads numb,
Who can take away this pain and liberate me from
these dreaded chains,
to make me grateful,
lift me from the pit of death,
vindicate my name,
and deliver me from the curse & flame?
Who can satisfy my soul and answer me,
what is my purpose plain?
Who can save me from my sin? What is this persons Name?
For the want of more I've wasted many night & day in vain,
to have my fill, and every thrill, yet emptiness remained/
The persistent craving of my heart, like yearning in my veins
again I searched in earnest, prayed, for respite from my hurt,
revelation of a hero deserving of my faith,
to help me turn away: from wells that don't quench my thirst,
and food worthless to allay/
Who can rescue me from death? What is this heroes Name?
The answer is in Jesus Christ,
the Paschal Lamb who laid His life
down as a libation, the sacred price paid
so that sinners could be saved!
In Christ we begin anew, washed of crimson stains,
made white like winters solstice flurry,
Hurry! Cease striving, be still,
while there is time yet in the day,
Seek and you shall find Him too,
It's true! He isn't in the grave,
From Sheol, He is Risen!
Alleluia! Free from deaths decay!
