I will drink the cup
The poison overflowing
I will lift you up
Watch over where youre going
The first one in
The last one gone
I'll be the rock
To stand upon
For you, for you

My spirit aches
And I cant stop this river flowing
In fear I take
Each labored breath I draw in knowing
That this could be my life
My final hour
But faith and hope and love
Give me the power
For you, for you

Yay though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
for you are with me
you are with me

Ill be your salvation
Though the storm surrounding
There are no conditions
Lay my body down
In the wake abandon
Willing sacrifice
Ill walk through the canyon
Bring the shadows light
For you, for you

I will drink the cup
The poison overflowing
I will lift you up
Watch over where youre going
The first one in
The last one gone
Ill be the rock to stand upon
The first one in
The last one gone
Ill be the rock to stand upon
For you
For you
For you
For you
