LYRICS

What have they done to you, Lord?
What have they done to you, Lord?

Your gentle eyes – so lonely now
Crying, Lord – what have they done?
Your healing hands – so weary now
Bleeding hands – what have they done?

What have they done to you, Lord?
What have they done to you, Lord?

Your loving heart – so broken now
Sacred heart – what have they done?
The prophet’s voice is silent now
Unspoken pain – what have they done?

What have they done to you, Lord?
What have they done to you, Lord?

Your thoughtful brow – so bloodied now
This crown of thorns – what have they done?
The faithful crowds betray you now
Abandoned, Lord – what have they done?

What have they done to you, Lord?
What have they done to you, Lord?

Your word of truth – forgotten now
They will not hear – what have they done?
Each tired step uncertain now
Stumbling Lord – what have they done?

What have they done to you, Lord?
What have they done to you, Lord?
