We knew Him
When He stood there
He showed Himself
To each one of us

We struggled in our heartache
Tomorrow’s another day
Wanting to be emperors
We failed to see our way

A world without limits
We saw ourselves as king
Making our decisions
As though they rang with truth

Little lives of failure
Desperation always rules
I want, I want is all we say
Death maintains its hold

No excuse not to know Him
No excuse can solve my pain
No excuse before the master
He doesn’t even know my name

It’s painful to know this
It’s painful to share this truth
Each of us called to choose
Without Jesus we are dead and lose
