The Calling of a Priest - video and lyrics
I am a cheat
I have cheated men,
I have cheated You
and I have cheated me.
I spend my time trying to see
what I can get out of those
who have to come and stand before me
and You're standing before me now.
And there is something I can get from You
but it's going to cost me everything else
that I've worked to make of myself
all this time.
You're standing before me now
last one I ever expected to see here
all these years of making myself into what I am
And it all doesn't seem so much somehow
with You standing here before me now.
And You say come, and I will come
I will sweep all of these other things away.
And You say follow, and I will follow
I will follow You to the very end of my days
Though I don't know just where it will lead me
It won't lead me anywhere easy
But I know that I must have what You have to give
And I know that I'll lose everything to gain it
But everything doesn't seem like so much anymore
With You standing here before me.
