Red

The red sea of earth melts beneath my feet
Stretching out far and wide
Way beyond my gaze
This ancient carpet now laid to waste
What lies beneath its skin?
The blackest gold seen by men
The greatest riches of the land
To see beyond our desert waste
To find our treasure there
To know and understand
God looks upon the heart of man
His blood ran red upon the earth
To cleanse sins darkest stain
To penetrate with blinding light
To lift me out of blackest night
Then take me into paradise.
