"The Harlot (Spontaneous)" as written by and Misty Edwards....
I'm broken
I'm wounded
I'm wretched and ashamed
And the harlot is like a chain around my neck, it's my name

She sings the song of humanity , the song of you the song ofme

(they drag her through the city square
Dragging her by her hair
She's kicking screaming and fighting)
(they drag her through the city square
Dragging her by her hair
She's kicking screaming and fighting)

I'm broken I'm wounded
I'm angry and afraid
And the harlot is like a chain around my neck
It's my name X2

She's faced down
This tangled hair
Every where as she's crying in the dust
As the dust turns to mudd on her face

This tangled hair
Every where as she's crying in the dust
Face down
Open up o open up o ground beneath me
How long does it take to stone one harlot down
I know the laws well as they do and I'm guilty, guilty
An adulterer, and I know I know O will this day never end
How long does it take to stone one harlot

I'm broken
I'm wounded
I'm wretched and ashamed
And the harlot is like a chain around my neck, it's my name

(as a congregation of the righteous gather round
They are ready to stone her down)
(as a congregation of the righteous gather round
They are ready to stone her down)

And someone from that frenzy marche
Shouts out let's take her to the teacher
Let's test him and see what he will say in an eruption of agreement
As they are taking her by her hair
They drag her through the city square
They are dragging her by her hair
She gave up the fight like a ?

They drag her through the city square
Dragging her by her hair
She's faced down

I'm broken I'm wounded
I'm angry and afraid
And the harlot, is like a chain around my neck, it's my name
It's who I am,
Open up o open up o ground beneath me, it wasn't supposed to

End this way
But I am guilty and I know it
I've got so many plans so much to do
But now it's too late
Guilty and I know it

Face down

What's he doing

As a congregation of the righteous gather round
They are ready to stone her down
They throw her at the feet of a teacher
Dare I look up ?
Surely they have brought me here to mock me

This tangled hair
Every where as she's crying in the dust
As the dust turns to mudd on her face
This tangled hair everywhere she's faced down in the dust in

The mudd
And there is a hush, and a congregation
What's he doing-
Time stands still

As the court of heaven was seated
There is a great throne of judgement
And there is the harlot and she is me
Face down

Looking through the tangled hair and the mudd in my eyes

The ? I raise my gaze only to realize
I am surrounded by beauty that will never be mine
As regret like a wave came crushing over me
If I had only known that such beauty was available
If I had only known but now it's too late

And the accuser of the brethren was pacing back and forth and back and forth and to and through
As he spilt out his words he was going back and forth and back and forth
He was listing off my sins one by one
And the thing was he was telling the truth
Guilty guilty guilty guilty
And the great count of witnesses and the angels o the angels
Looked on the scene
As the accuser of the brethren was going back and forth
Glee in his eye guilty guilty guilty guilty
And resound to the corridor of eternity in time like a thunder in my soul
He was right I was guilty guilty to eternal damnation for my soul
And there was nothing I could nothing I could do
Face down, face down, couldn't even open my eyes, the regret was so strong
There's a hand on my shoulder, a hand on my shoulder
And I hear a voice, like music in my ear
Dare I look up ? , I couldn't lift my eyes but all I saw
That beautiful feet, and I heared that voice like music, music to my soul
He said , Father I desire that she will be with me where I am, show her my glory
Father I desire this one, this one she is mine, she is mine , she is mine
He was praying for my soul , he was pleading for my behalf
He was praying for me, I couldn't comprehend it, I couldn't understand what was going on
Father I desire that everything that's mine would be hers and everything that's hers would be

Mine
Father Father I desire this one, this one, she's mine she's mine she's mine
And all the heaven gasp in belief
And I opened up my eyes
And I watched in wonder
This beautiful one stood to his feet
I looked up and there was a great trone and there was the father
And he had a cup of wrath with my name on it
It had my name on it
And I was just about to rise to drink
Guilty guilty guilty
But I watched in unbelief this beautiful one, he walked on to his father
And drank of the cup
And before I knew what was going on he drank of the cup
He drank of the cup
He drank of the cup of the father's wrath
He drank of the cup of the marriage wine
He drank of the cup with my name on it
He drank of the cup and all the blood..
I jumped to my feet and I ran over to him and it was too late
I tried to stop him but I didn't know it was too late
And all the blood all the blood , and all the blood
It should have been me, and I was weeping and weeping and I ran over forgetting where I was
And I fell down face, down down and o pleased Father crush him
But it was too late , I began to plead it should have been me , it should have been me
But it was too late, why did he do it but it was too late
And all the blood, and all the blood, and all the blood, and all the blood
I was weeping weeping and crying it should have been me, it should have been me
Face down, why did he do it? face down, why did he do it?
It should have been me
Was weeping and weeping, why did he gave his life, all the blood
Was weeping and weeping
And I heard a whisper like music
"what's yours is mine and what's mine is yours"

I looked to the left, I looked to the right, and I was on a sea of glace like crystal
There was a great great congregation dressed in white
From every tounge, from every tribe, from every people
And the music began and a celebration erupted
And I opened up my eyes, and there was the lamb, although he was slain
And I was at a wedding and I couldn't believe my eyes
And I was dressed in garments, garments of beauty
And the music erupted and the angels sing halleluja halleluja the chore has broke out
And I looked out and saw the lamb with eyes like fire radiating radiating with desire
And he said what's yours is mine and what's mine is yours
Arise and sit on the throne, prepare for your beauty, rise beauty rise, beauty rise
And we say with one heart and one voice, worthy is the lamb of God
Who takes away the sins of the world
Oh worthy is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world
Worthy is the lamb of God yeah, who takes away the sins of the world X2

We will marry the lamb, halleluja, we will marry the lamb forever amen
And worthy is the lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world
Worthy is the lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world

Halleluja halleluja ,
There's going to be a wedding,
There's going to be a wedding ,thre's going to be a wedding yeah

People get ready

What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours
Who can comprehend where this is going
He said beauty arise, arise, aris
