[DESCENT INTO THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW]

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will not fear
Yea, though I breathe heavy, struggle in every breath,
I will draw near

[PASSAGE THROUGH THE VALLEY]

I have broken bread with evil unaware
I have sat down to dine with the road to hell
I have walked hand-in-hand with deception and greed...
and I have lived to tell!

Sometimes I feel like a puppet of "fate"
and struggle to sever the strings
Sometimes my soul tries to fly away
but collapses under broken wings
The modern-day Judas has planted the kiss
The chameleon has changed once again
Open the gates of betrayal
Plant the knife in my back, my "friend"

Why must another day sown with confusion?
Why must I sleep wrapped in blankets of pain?
Trying to win with the cards I've been dealt,
but without eyes of faith, there can be nothing gained
The thorn in my flesh, the scars of myself
The dance with deception, the death of my pride
Confusion of life, twisting the knife inside

The hand of "fate" has wrapped its freezing fingers around me
and squeezed until the life dripped from my soul
And broken strings disrupt cohesion of my symphony,
but my eyes watch the Conductor in control

I wait for an answer, I search for a sign
I pray for the healing of time
I look for a reason to bring peace of mind,
but once more, no reason I find
Father, hear my cry!

Spirits swarm around me: I feel it
They war against the one who dwells inside
Fate does not exist - I know it in my soul
and strive to have that same faith in my mind
Tonight I sleep upon a bed of nails, it seems,
for once again I am a field of war
But it has long been written
All things work together perfectly for me,
for I have been reborn

The hand of God has wrapped protective fingers around me
to guard me from a self-defeating way
The Spirit brings discernment, so I need no eyes to see
I realize my loss is gain today

I wait for an answer, I search for a sign
I pray for the healing of time
I can't fathom the reasons with this mortal mind,
so I step out in faith after closing my eyes
Father, hear my cry!

[ASCENT UNTO THE MOUNTAIN]

[A – x4] Visions of a child, visions of a life I behold
Visions that I can't purge from my mind
Visions in the night, dreams of second sight I behold
Dreams of supernatural warning signs?

(B – x6) The issues of man, the fabric of time
all weave in cohesion, exist interwined
Divine orchestration, flawless grand design
Beyond comprehension, beyond mortal minds)

(C – x2) Methodically, flawlessly restructuring my life
Supernaturally changing me, surgically precise)

Father of glory, the only help I see
Reach down Your hands to me, set me free
Father of mercy, please take this hex from me,
For yes, I do…
Yes, I do…
Yes, I do believe
