Orð og lag: Niclas Johannesen, Lena Anderssen, Russ Taff og Jákup Zachariassen

They came from every village and town
To say goodbye to the missionary man

And one by one they spoke about his life
The way he lived and why he died

Some loved him, some hated him
Some said that he would live again

But they all agreed he was a brave, brave man
For preaching love in this troubled land

And He gave his life for what He believed
And He believed in what He gave
But when the choice came down to live or die
There was no choice to be made

What makes a man leave the ones he loves
To love the ones who don’t care about him

To walk a road that others fear
And stand alone with no one near?

It was not for money, it was not for fame
Damascus rode and his life was changed

And tears would stream down his face
As he spoke of God’s amazing grace

And He gave his life for what He believed
And He believed in what He gave
But when the choice came down to live or die
There was no choice to be made

They arrested Him just before dawn
And marched Him through the crowds with scorn

“Repent! Repent!” they cried with might
That’s the only thing that will save your life

And He gave his life for what He believed
And He believed in what He gave
But when the choice came down to live or die
The choice was already made
