Condemned to a bed
Where you held your head
High enough to smile

I wish I had your strength
Asking God,
"Please don't take her
away from me."

"God where were you
when I needed you the most?
She lived her life with grace
And I'll live my life with love for You."

I knew him well
He would have gave his life for me
He laid in a hallway
I found salvation perfectly

Your death was my grace
You led me back to faith
I hope he knows that he took that weight away
I hope he knows that he took my pain away

Hear my cry, Oh God
I call as my heart grows faint
Hear my cry, Oh God
I call as my heart grows faint
Hear my cry, Oh God
I call as my heart grows faint
Hear my cry, Oh God
I call as my heart grows faint

    General Commentseems to be about two things: the death of a close friend or family member and reflecting on Christ's mission on earth as He died so that we may live.


    ps. anyone know what language the title is in?

    General CommentKyleee I agree with what you said & I also believe the title is in Latin since lots of things relating to Jesus were in Latin.
    I tried looking up what the words meant and it goes something like this:
    'Salus' means safety, health, salvation
    'Suas' means persuasion
    'Extanderealas' means from within
    'Concedit' means allow or grant

    Very interesting.

    General Commentnuclearnatalie.. if what those words mean is true then just thinking by putting them together maybe its something along the lines of with Jesus's safety health and salvation he pursuaded us from within to be allowed new life in Him..? maybe, just throwing a guess out there but i love this song im gonna suggest my churches band to play it sometime, they play covers all the time and this would be a great one

    General CommentI think this was titled wrong..but the title means something along the lines of "Health allows its wings to spread."
