WOLVES AT THE GATE lyrics : "Dead Man"

I was once a dead man
A stranger with no home
I stood opposed to God himself

And yet He pardoned me

With all my heart and the fiercest will

Desired not but to thieve and kill
I hadn't a thought of peace, but war
Surrender was not what I'd endure


I was a murderer filled with lies and deceit
Faced with my list of crimes that I would always repeat


Deliver me! Wake me up from this damning sleep
I'm surrendering! Pull me out from this wickedness

In this thieving heart of stone
I realized all these sins I could not atone


I was a murderer filled with lies and deceit
Faced with my list of crimes that I would always repeat


I was once a dead man
A stranger with no home
I stood opposed to God himself

And yet He pardoned me

So just at the right time when we were dead in our sins

You took this heart of mine and gave me life again
You gave me life again
This is where I begin


So far apart and a debt to fulfill
This purchase bought on redemption's hill

An ailing disease I couldn't cure
Oh this grace! How rich and pure!


Abide in me, my God! I am found in You
Pardon me, my God! You know my deepest thoughts
Deliver me from sin! I am made anew

I'm surrendering this heart! For which your blood it bought

The mob they yelled and screamed for justice

That wrath was ours we are to blame
You made a spectacle of rulers
Denying You of a king's fame

Having crushed the written cannon
That wrote of all our guilt and shame
Displayed upon the tree it was nailed

The saving power of Your name

For I was once a dead man

A stranger with no home
You saw this wretch
And You gave him life

Forever I'll praise You!
I will praise You!
