Song Lyrics

"The Cut"

by Jason Gray
Album: Acoustic Storytime

My heart is laid
Under Your blade
As you carve out Your image in me
You cut to the core
But still you want more
As you carefully, tenderly ravage me

And You peel back the bark
And tear me apart
To get to the heart
Of what matters most
I'm cold and I'm scared
As your love lays me bare
But in the shaping of my soul
They say the cut makes me whole

Mingling here
Your blood and my tears
As You whittle my kingdom away
But I see that you suffer, too
In making me new
For the blade of Love, it cuts both ways

And You peel back the bark
And tear me apart
To get to the heart
Of what matters most
I'm cold and I'm scared
As your love lays me bare
But in the shaping of my soul
They say the cut makes me whole

Hidden inside the grain
Beneath the pride and pain
Is the shape of the man
You meant me to be
Who with every cut now you try to set free

CHORUS'
'With everyday
You strip more away
And You peel back the bark
And tear me apart
To get to the heart
Of what matters most
I'm cold and I'm scared
As your love lays me bare
But in the shaping of my soul
The blade must take it's toll
So God give me strength to know
That the cut makes me whole
