    Lyrics

    A mural of memories moves by in a blur
    His prayers all seem unanswered and unheard
    His pleading petitions, his loud cries and tears
    A last reprieve will simply not appear

    So ruthless He loves us, so reckless His embrace
    To show relentless kindness to a hardened human race
    The joy that was before Him
    On the Man of Sorrow's face
    And by His blood he bought a violent grace

    Most willing of victims, and with His final breath
    Destroyed the one who holds the power of death
    The hate heaped upon Him, scorning all the shame
    But all for love He died and overcame

    So ruthless He loves us, so reckless His embrace
    To show relentless kindness to a hardened human race
    The joy that was before Him
    On the Man of Sorrow's face
    And by His blood He bought a violent grace

    In all of time no one had ever heard
    And to the world the thought seemed so absurd
    Beyond their wildest dreams no one could ever tell
    Of a high priest who would sacrifice Himself

    So ruthless He loves us, so reckless His embrace
    To show relentless kindness to a hardened human race
    The joy that was before Him
    On the Man of Sorrow's face
    And by His blood He bought a violent grace
    So ruthless He loves us, so reckless His embrace
    To show relentless kindness to a hardened human race
    The joy that was before Him
    On the Man of Sorrow's face
    And by His blood He bought a violent grace

    And by His blood He bought a violent grace
    A violent grace
