Oh my son, you were born in a world that hates you
And I swear I will never forsake you
But there was a Father centuries ago
Who watched His beloved Son die, oh, die

Oh my son, I am weak and Im trembling
For the Lord, I am always remembering
Oh, what a strong Shepherd holds you in His arms
He'll break you and make you His own and then take you home

Well, if I could I would protect you from what you will see
This world will promise love and beauty, but it lied to me
And I will show you, if you will listen
And I will promise to listen too

Oh yes, there are some who love the lies
They will kill you if they can
Though you speak the truth in love
They will hate you like the man

Jesus, although He was God
He allowed Himself broken for you

Well, if I could I would protect you from what you will see
This world just might seem so alive but its dead to me
And I will teach you, if you will hear me
And I will promise to hear you too, yes, I do

Oh, my son, I am only your brother
For a sister, God gave me your mother
But just like the mother, so long ago
Had to watch her beloved Son die

Die, oh son, we will try
To let you go

The Lord says to us tonight, He gave us His Son
Why won't we give Him our life in return
All of it, why not? He loves us
