Life Left Him There


There was a kind and gentle soul
And he was tied up to a chair
And still he loved and never lost
Although life left him there

And when he moaned the timbers shook
The floor beneath him too
And plaster fell on his bare head
The fire was bright and blue

I know we're going to meet you
I know we're going to meet you there
I know we're going to meet you somewhere

Whatever debts are paid in full
Receive me now he cried
And as the walls came crackling down
Believers watched outside

O lamb of God was ever pain
Was ever doubt so rare
And still he loved and never lost
Although life left him there

I know we're going to meet you
I know we're going to meet you there
I know we're going to meet you somewhere

I know we're going to meet you
I know we're going to meet you there
I know we're going to meet you somewhere
