Love Called My Name
Ben Bauman/Scott Riggan/Randy Thomas
Copyright 1999

I was the friend that denied you
Three times I denied you
When the third rooster crowed

And I, I handed you over
Thirty pieces of silver
Was the price of my soul

And there on the road to Damascus
I saw clearly what I was
When your blinding light came

And love called my name
When I was lost
I had no hope, til you came to me
You took away the shadows
That clouded my heart
I knew I was found
On that day
When love called my name

I, I was the man who
Was washing his hands to
Hand over a king

And I said I wouldn't believe it
Unless I could see it
The scarred hands and feet

And I was the thief hung beside you
Deserving to die
But you shouldered the blame


I was the friend they had laid in the grave
'Til I heard through the sorrowful cries
The voice that commanded the wind and the waves
Say arise, arise, and love called my name...
