1. The Last Creed

Like dust in the wind
A man's heart goes unseen
His labors forgotten at the threshold of time
The grass withers, the flowers fades
But the word of his testimony stands forever
The man's honor was his love
Faithfullness - his pledge
But his memory - a pearl to the swine

One man walked tall
Faced the devil with his back against the wall
To the ground, the blood ran off his fingers
Scorched from fire in his bones
Yet today, his last thought lingers
Around his neck, against his heart
He wore a silver cross
- He knew what freedom cost

His voice only an echo in the wind
Freed those golden shackles
A child of time no more
A mirror of the crimson thorn
That the man of sorrow wore
He gave unselfishly
< As to shrink from death>>
The devil stole his life, love
But not the hope of his soul

If he'd only died in her arms
His dream would have been complete
Yet can such love dwell in a man
If God is his witness, I know it can
Would you plant the seed
Of that martyr's last creed
Proclaim God's gospel
Raise your head, heed his hope

Did You stand by the week
Whom the angels serve
Will you dare to hold
A martyrs hand
And guide the unseen host
Who with him stand
Will you share that vision at death's door
Stand proud by his side
To serve the Lord

2. You Maintain

You maintain that I am dead
You neglect the words I said
You maintain there's no Divinity
You have chosen an ideology
That has left you blind

You maintain there is no evidence
To prove that I'm behind your existence
You maintain there is no truth in Me
You avoid the possibility
That I gave you life

You cannot see that

I sustain everything
I am the origin
I am the author of life
I'm your creator

Surely you think you know what's best
But your mind just won't give you rest
Your heart is filled with hopelessness
By reason of your emptiness
You're in need of love

You must belive that


Blinded by pride
You shut Me outside
You could be free
If you would just listen to Me

Your void can be filled with My love
A love I proved through Jesus Christ My Son
He died so that you could be set free
And understand what life is meant to be
Truth can be revealed

Then you'll see that


3. In Memoriam

4. A Father's Mourning

I cried when you left home
I shed my tears alone
I once held you in my arms
And I kept you warm
We were so close, a father to son
But now you are gone

Please tell me why you had to leave me
I still wonder why
One thing I know, I will be waiting
For your return

Your heart is slowly growing cold
Your spirit is dying, wasting your soul
Losing hope, strangled by fear
Still you choose to live a lie
Do you not believe I could still love you?
Well, I proved it on a cross


Don't walk away
There is a room made for you
You belong to me

I still love you

5. A Whisper From Heaven

Can you hear the whisper from heaven?
God is calling you...

6. On a Different Day

On a different day I enter the road
To the old Jerusalem
I'm starting to walk the road as I can hear
The sound of a joyfull noise

I see a crowd of people who's gathered
Around a man who looks so poor
That I never imagined could exist
His dirty body is only covered
With the shreds of his clothes
He is propably one of the homeless, a beggar
The lowest of them all

Yet he behaves like the most happy man
I've ever heard or seen
I can see his face, smiling and laughing
But I don't know why
The people around him is telling me
That this man has been healed
His whole life he has been blind
But now he can see
I say:

His name is Jesus, they say He is the Messiah
The Son of God, the Prince of peace
Sent down to earth to wash us clean from sin
So we can see the light of day
No matter what wrong you have done
He can forgive you from it all
Hust call His name and you will see
Believe in Jesus, and all your sins must flee

So I asked the man: 'Jesus, the son of God?'
He sain: 'They fulfilled the prophecies,
That a man would die and rise again
On the third day
And that he would pay the price of guilt
Through a blood covenant
I have seen His face, He is alive
He has shown me His nail-marks
He said: go into all the world
And preach good news
God loves mankind'

7. Coming of the Dawn


The comming of the dawn is near.
The Master will return...

8. Sonrise

Walking up the hill
To be crucified
Carrying a cross on His shoulder
He is a thorn apart
Body weakening
Carrying the sins of all the world
As He dies
Entering the kingdom of death
Taking the key

The sky is black
The darkness takes authority
Their hearts are black
They killed the Son of God

Three days after death
Mary takes the oil
Langing to anoint Jesus body
She arrives the place
Only to find out
The stone is rolled away
And the body gone

Why did she seek the living among the dead
He had risen from His death-bed

An empty grave
Only His garments were left
The prince paid
Blood has been shared
The Light is back
And it will never fade away
He brings us back
To the author of life

I am relased from death

Light of life
Light of love
Shine on me
