playBorn Of Blood And Love

from Wise As Serpents...Gentle As A Dove


A man once dared to touch the idols of this world
He said, soldier, you don't have to shoot your gun
And as he preached the Word, the doors flung open wide
And the guns he tried to silence took his life
And blood inside the cup was running on the ground
Life had been proclaimed and life had been shot down

Once there were four nuns who went to Salvador
To find the face of Jesus in the poor
But death squads on the right took those sacred lives
And the government was duly horrified
And blood inside the cup was running on the ground
Life had been proclaimed, and life had been shot down

(Chorus)
But death can never stop what's been born of
Blood and Love
Give glory to the Son!
And guns can never drop what's been born of
Blood and Love
Proclaim it ''''til he comes! (1 Cor. 11:26)
The grave can never stop the rising up
Born of Blood and Love

Six more holy men, and tens of thousands more
Have drunk the Savior's cup in Salvador (Matthew 20:22)
To boldly speak the truth, and then to pay the price (John 15:18ff)
The way of those who follow Jesus Christ
And blood inside the cup is running on the ground
Life has been proclaimed, and life has been shot down

(Chorus)
