lyrics

The air around me stills.
The ache in my head slips away and I am left in chills.
But how can this be?
Am I still living?
A mist circles round my feet.
I feel a burden lift from me, I am free.

My flesh no longer torn by battle.
I walk through this sea of gray.
No sun yet no shadow.
Then his voice called out to me.

My son!
You have fought for glory.
I have heard your cries.
I have not forsaken.
Always by your side.

My son!
You have passed through fire.
Tempered you’ve emerged.
A good and faith servant.
No sentence shall you serve.

I don’t deserve this.
Must I account my sinful deeds?
If you truly have been watching,
then you must know there’s no faith in me.
I have rejected all you’ve offered.
I’ve rebuked your very name.
For certain the lake of fire.
Would be a better place for me.

My son!
You have fought for glory.
I have heard your cries.
I have not forsaken.
Always by your side.

My son!
You have passed through fire.
Tempered you’ve emerged.
A good and faith servant.
No sentence shall you serve.

My son!
You have fought for glory.
I have heard your cries.
I have not forsaken.
Always by your side.

My son!
You have passed through fire.
Tempered you’ve emerged.
A good and faith servant.
No sentence shall you serve.

I saw a thousand familiar faces of those that I’d once know.
I heard my father's laughter s he beckoned me on home.

I felt the embrace of my brother, as tears fell from my eyes.
We accounted all tales of battle, and saw the glory in our trials.
