Song Lyrics

"Distarnish Priest"

by Mortification
Album: Scrolls / Post Momentary

Chorus

Distarnish Priest
Distarnish Priest
I'm clean, washed in blood
Sanctified inside out
Oh I'm dead to Satan's grasp
Justified by the cross

Verse 1

Vertical convulsion, striven force
Grasp desired service
Hideous onslaught attacks the mind
Vicious intent prevails

Bridge

Serve your God
Your time will come

Verse 2

Guard your heart, bow before God
Sack cloth and ashes repentance
Radical conversion, zeal of love
Put faith in actions

Interlude

I'm lost, inside your ways
I've found, a new escape
This life, no fantasy
New ways, reality
Always growing, never fading
Hope increasing, peace astounding
Always knowing, never falling
My salvation, making me

Chorus repeat

Verse 4

Wretched man, that I am
Chronicle thought diseases
My priestly robes must be clean
Pentinence of ministers

Bridge repeat

Verse 5

Bow at the altar of sacrifice
Living flesh submission
Eucharist served to others passed
Priest of life's maturity

Chorus repeat

(1 Timothy 3:1-7, Jonah 3, Psalm 51, Romans 7:13-25)
