lyrics

I met a man on a field of green
Introduced himself said Jesus was his name
Words he spoke rang ever so true
Do unto others as you’d do unto you

My sweet Lord
Please forgive
We struggle with
The ought and the is

Up walked a man with folded hands
Told me tales of courage and the plight of his land
Vitriol and hate the fall of mankind
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

My sweet Lord
Please forgive
We struggle with
The ought and the is

They took me up to see the King
Another great man who had the same dream
Reverend, oh reverend why must it be
Those who speak peace are all taken from me

My sweet Lord
Please forgive
We struggle with
The ought and the is

My sweet Lord
Please forgive
We struggle with
The ought and the is


You know of us please tell us of you
I spoke of love and they killed me too
