04. Do You Know This Man?

Prayers
by 1000 Generations



 

He called His friends together for dinner one last time
He said, “one of you will betray me,
and that of which is not mine.”
So before they ate, He told this certain guest that
He could be excused
And while the rest of them prayed, an offer was made that just could not be refused.

When He broke the bread, He said, “this is my body, which has been given up for you”
And when He poured the wine, He said, “this is the divine Blood of Life that’s everlasting and new.”

Then after the feast, when man sleeps cause the flesh is weak, He said, “rise, my betrayer’s at hand.”
And the soldiers came and took Him away,
just like it was planned….

Do you know this Man?
Do you know this Man?
Have you let in the love that poured from His hands?
Do you know this Man?

…and when they beat Him, He stood alone.
Even His friends had fled,
cause they feared for their lives, they even told lies.
“We don’t know that guy,” they said.

And when they took Him to the judge and he announced, “He’s done no wrong to condemn,”
The people, they yelled and threatened to rebel.
Only His life would silence them…

Do you know this Man?
Do you know this Man?
Have you let in the love that poured from His hands?
Do you know this Man?

…they tore off His clothes, whipped Him to the bone, and beat a thorn crown in His head…
Then they took this Man, drove nails in His hands, and with one last breath He cried…

But the only reason that He died
Was for our lies, our greed, our egos that we feed,
Our mouths, our sex, our pride and complex,
Our rage, our hate, to forgive and consecrate,
The Ultimate Price was paid
But it’s never too late

For you to know this Man
Do you know this Man?
Have you let in the love pours from His hands?
Do you know this Man?
Do you know this Man?



Behind the Song:
I will always remember the first time I heard the lyrics to this song. Steven recited them as his fulfillment of an art project we’d been given in a college course we had together. You could tell that it had quite an affect on people. It so plainly, yet beautifully told the story of Christ. At this point, Steven had only been a Christian for a year and he was intrigued by the life of Christ. I, however, having been raise a Christian and now attending a Christian University, had completely turned my attention from Christ and onto more “important” theological issues. What an eye opener! It made me realize that, though I professed to be a Christian, I did not know “this man” that the song spoke about…and that needed to change.
