I come embattled to your gates
I am draped in blood and guilt,
your walls terrify me
Knowing that beyond lies deliverance.
A million souls of souls long dead
who journeyed this same path,
and now I almost crawl to you
my last breath drawn, my dagger thrust.
For now I stand here a naked man
my soul is bereft of faith,
I shake and cry in agony
Oh lord oh lord deliver me.
