lyrics

Father we confess
Oh we confess
we have loved you less than ourselves

Father we confess
Oh we confess
All the idols we’ve built

We are betrayed by what we say
By what we do
And what we claim
We want to be famous

Take us down and lay us low
Leave ashes in place of gold
Life-giver sustainer
Let nothing remain of our pride
From your mountain on high
Lay us low

Father, we forget
Oh how we forget
To forgive like you forgive us
Oh, how we pretend
Oh we pretend
We are wise and we are just
We are betrayed by what we say
By what we do
And what we claim
We’ve declared our own agendas

Chorus
