A Man Hangs in the Distance

A man hangs in the distance

Blood dark as my hateful sins

Falls to the broken dry ground

A man groans in the distance

Dust, dry as my empty heart

Soaks up the precious wine,

A man cries in the distance

The tear as holy as heaven

Heals my terrible wounds

A man speaks in the distance

"I forgive you my beloved

Wear your stains no more"

A man dies in the distance

Forgiveness and redemption

Are birthed and given life

Through sorrow and death

A man hangs in the distance…
