He could have prospered out in the suburbs
Instead of working for the poor
Down at the inner-city mission
Where there's so much disappointment and very few rewards.
For every victory there's a failure
On these harsh and empty streets
But if you ask what keeps him going
He'll say,"I know where I'd be if Christ had given up on me"
Beneath the symbol of a lost cause
Is where I take my stand.
Beneath the emblem of a Roman cross
and a Sacrificial Lamb.
'Cause love never claims the victory
Until it finally gives its all.
And that's why the grave is empty
Beneath the symbol of a lost cause.
Now I've been a slave to popular opinions,
And I've memorized the Gospel of success,
I've had a taste of the politics of power
And the glamour that commands the world's respect.
But when I turn my eyes to Jesus,
Nailed on a Cross to die for me,
I hear the cock crow in the distance
And it shatters my illusions and drives me to my knees
Where the last and the least meet the Prince of their Peace,
Where the humble are honored and the hungry come to feast
