The Lyrics

Peter was one of the twelve disciples, and later an apostle of Jesus Christ.
Give me a shekel I,
I need to pay the Temple tax
So I can preach the Gospel
As recorded in the book of Acts
My brother, also known as Drew
Fisherman by trade
He told me we could fish for sinner men
Witness unafraid and...

I know I fell into the stormy sea
I know that Malchus lost an ear
But between the day I called Him Christ
The living God He gave His Son
You know, I'm trusting Him to make me whole

So if you may fall to temptation
And your tears are falling down
My witness to you:

That night,
I denied
the one who set the world on fire,
and can shine brighter,
Than the sun.

That night
Bitter cries
When He asked me if I loved Him
"Feed my sheep, Peter,"
Said the Son

Now I know that I'm not
Really a rock
Just a small stone
I just thought maybe I could. But I always fall apart
But in Jesus' name
When He drank our cup
Cause I found a Savior to carry me home

That night
I no longer serve earth's power
Sin ceases fire
Watch the Son

That night
Satan's lies
Silently they all misfire
Just hear the choir
From the Son

Take me to be with you
Just take me to be with you
Take me to be with you
Just take me to be with you

The thief won paradise (nanananannanana)
The demons: watch them all run (anananananananan)
An offense to all Matt twenty six thirty one (nananananana)
The angels watched with amaze( nananananananan)
Lama sabachtani (nanannananananan)
It is finished and then the curtain was torn. (anananana)

That night,
Through us He sets the world on fire,
Image entire,
Praise the Son.

That night
Now I no longer fear the fire,
Nor man's require,
Than the Son.

So if you may fall
To temptation
And your tears are falling down
My witness to you:

That night............................
