From the recording FIRST BORN
O my soul of souls, where would we be
Without the First Born to set us free?
Would life without love lead to another,
Or just begin only to end forever?
Without the First Born to set us free,
O my soul, where would we be?
What would this life be worth without our Savior's birth,
Or if the First Born had not walked on the earth?
And would those of faith had spread the word like grains of sand,
Without reaching around the world to take a stand?
Who would we praise while bowing down in the dark to pray,
And if enslaved by death, whose name would we bless?
Could we go on day-after-day with no tomorrow?
Could we find the way with no light and faith to follow?
Where would the sounds of freedom ring in this day and age,
Or would the bells toll for the souls lost in bondage?
And what if the First Born of creation had not come:
To forgive, to love, and to die, so all may live?
