lyrics

Unexpected • Undeserved

The barren wilderness is the last place
you would expect to find
a prodigal sower of seeds.
Yet in this unlikely place one appeared,
offering new life for all,
including the excluded –
those on the fringes,
those who live in desolation
of one kind or another.

Around this grower of grace
a crowd gathered;
curious, hopeful and ultimately demanding.
Some followed his call to new pathways –
he led them through the desert of despair
to higher elevations, verdant and sanguine.

Few, if any, saw the pinnacle looming.
No one truly understood
where the fullness of love would lead.
No one expected it would all end
in such a dreadful manner,
death – it is finished –
executed upon a mountain's crown.

There are voices that say this ending
was only a beginning
of a whole new world –
glimpsed in an upper room,
and a barren tomb.
