lyrics

i am my brother's keeper
i kept him safe across this land
i kept him warm, but i couldn't keep him
couldn't keep him, lord, from your hands

in your land of plenty
of plenty ill, of plenty greed
plenty a night i sat to wonder
wonder why it's him you need
why so swift and sudden darkness,
why have i no light to see,
why have you taken but a child lord,
why have you turned your back to me?

but i've found the answer;
that my king doesn't answer to me
and how i've strayed, how i've wandered
from the path you left for me
because as sure as you're my saviour
in the end you must save me
you will save my brothers fallen
and all of us so safe you will keep

i am my brother's keeper
i kept him safe across this land
i kept him warm, but i couldn't keep him
couldn't keep him, lord, from your hands
