Lord, I have feared to walk in the dark of the night
Knowing the enemy so awaits; to pounce and harm me
And so I hesitate, shining my light I so fear in darkness
If but only to save my skin, to preserve this life
But today you say; I am the resurrection and the life
You see Lord, this one life only I have got
Losing it is a big risk, a lifetime mistake it is perceived
Yet you so tell me; to lose it and gain it in you
It is not that easy to bear my Cross and receive my beating
But this you tell; I am the resurrection and the life
So what more would I desire than life?
What is more valuable to man beyond his life?
For the whole world this one thing He would trade
And for this I have made my sale; to follow you
For you are the resurrection and the life
What more are people looking for?
What is that that my kinsmen labor earnestly to have?
Would it exceed the price of life, more expensive than breath?
It’s a funny world down here, that forsakes true fortune
Not knowing that in you is resurrection and life
Thanks that this you have made known
Not to the wisest of us all, only but to children
Yes, mere children have gained understanding
To comprehend and know that ye only we need
Even you who is the resurrection and the life
