Evensong

Written by: Ryan Lucas

Hot on my trail
Tempters are everywhere
Armed to the teeth
Bent on their own betrayal
But I won't ever give in
So let the rapture begin

I was alone
Blinded with despair
Enslaved by my fear
Caught in an awful snare
Until that costly day
When you washed my guilt away

Though sinners fall astray
And feel unworthy
How can I lose my way
If you never deny me?

Mocked for the truth
I've paid a heavy price
Shunned by the world
Burdened with sacrifice
But I won't ever give in
So let the rapture begin

Though sinners fall astray
And feel unworthy
How can I lose my way
If you never deny me?

I felt you take my bitter cup
With a groan, you drank it up
Although it's hard to comprehend
The veil keeps growing thin

Though sinners fall astray
And feel unworthy
How can I lose my way
If you never deny me?
