lyrics

These walls hold secrets and tales of death
A prison lacking hope, no love for life
A stench its decaying breath
But as a light and beacon of hope
His hands reach out to the captives so alone
In this place of abandon

This man of the faith, his cause is the cross
Delivers his prayers to the broken and lost
He served with his life
To give hope to those in need
Trapped in a place no one belonged
He lived what he believed

The soldiers, the captors, blind to the pain
Spit their commands at the prisoners:
“Line up the men! It's time that they pay!
Ten lives will be taken for the one who got away!”
So they dragged the innocent to face their end
And a cry of agony was heard from one of them:
"My wife, my kids! I'll never see them again!
What will they do? What will they do?"

Then the priest stepped forward
And in courageous display
Offered up his life
To take the prisoner's place

This man of the faith, his cause is the cross
Delivers his prayers to the broken and lost
He served with his life
To give hope to those in need
Trapped in a place no one belonged
He lived what he believed
Greater love has no man than this

A life was offered and a life was saved
This speaks of redemption and points to the Way!
