(Lyrics) “To Hell With Jesus”

March 11, 2021

“If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks: You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”
– Atticus Finch, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

"I want to KNOW Christ! Yes - to know the power of his resurrection, and to particpate in his sufferings. and Yes! - even becoming like him in his death..." The Apostle Paul, Letter to the Philippians

“....and He was crucified, dead and buried; and descended into hell.” - The Apostles Creed

“for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”
― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being


Oh how low
just how low must I go?
Oh how deep into the darkest parts of Me
must I be dragged to?
Oh how far low
must I truly, TRULY go to
to feel what I need to?
A low, just as low
as Me, for Thee.

Oh how lost
Just lost must I become
to truly feel those eyes
looking onward, not answering my heart-song round the fire?
And I try and stumble on
just to find myself in Hell
if Hell be called a place
where Truth cries out unanswered
As lost, just as lost
as Me - for Thee.

As lost, oh! Just as lost
as I came - for Thee.

Oh, how dark
Oh how dark must I see?
Where seeing amounts to nothing
and silence so loud I swear it screams?
To wake up in a world
so upside-down and wrong
so void of all things
known as Truth and Love and Amen
As Dark, the Darkest Dark,
as Me - for Thee

As Dark, Oh! Blackest dark -
as I went to, love - for thee.

Oh how sweet
Oh how sure this sweet sweet vengeance!
This resting assurance
like a warm coal just
burning in my chest
A Truth fighting Frozen
through the cold and the broken
the bones all beholden
as Truth burns in Silence
As sweet - oh! How sweet it was for Me
As sweet, just as sweet as Me - for thee.
