Soothe the wicked soul inside.
Strike the chord; your son has lied.
Born of laughter, dying blind.
Play the chord, your son has lied.
Learn to live and play the note,
Colors bright and shredded coat.
Turn around and let them see —
watch them bow to King of Dreams.
Son of Jesse save your babe,
Dead upon the seventh day.
Sadly wait and play your chord -
Sons are taken by the sword.
Counting stars above your head,
As much as ev'ry grain of sand—
Evr'y single one is yours,
Except the one, so play the chord.
Weak in body, strong in soul,
Witnessed passing of the old.
Brought by fire to the lord,
Playing knowingly the chord.
Jedidiah, Loved by Lord,
Once you also played the chord.
Wise you were, but never well—
Falling when the Temple fell.
Blest you've been with many gifts-
Wonders, miracles, and bliss—
Never any hymns afford.
Please strike up and play the chord.
Though it is a lonely sound,
With bitterness and grief is crowned;
Deep within is something sweet—
Something lain before His feet.
Even though the rod we bear,
Men before us had their share.
When they suffered, still they roared
The somber chord unto the lord.
