Matthias Replaces Judas Lyrics - Showbread
Review The Song (10)
It is so that my transgressions have born a withered fruit.
The sun has scorched the rising plains; alas they have no root.
The bleached bones of animals bound by leather strips dance through the air with laughter as I wield this wicked whip.
As you did warn me carpenter, this world has weakened my heart;
so easily I disparage, self-seeking the work of my art.
And there you have come to me at the moment I bathe in my sorrow,
so in love with myself, sought after avoiding tomorrow.
Where do you find the love to offer he who betrays you,
and offer to wash my feet as I offer to disobey you?
Your beauty does bereave me, and how my words do fail,
so faithfully and dutifully I award you with betrayal.
The weak and the down trodden fall on broken legs.
As I walk past a smile I cast, fervor in my stead.
But my bones like plastic, do buckle backward now;
I lay in this field by Judas and anticipate the plow.
I can not be forgiven; my wages will be paid.
For those more lovely and admirable is least among the saved.
And where would I fit Jesus?
What place is left for me?
The price of atonement is more than I've found to offer as my plea.
Jesus, my heart is all I have to give to you.
So weak and so unworthy; this simply will not do.
No alabaster jar,
no diamond in the rough;
for your body that was broken,
how can this be enough?
By me you were abandoned,
by me you were betrayed,
yet in your arms and in your heart forever I have stayed
Your glory illuminates my life, and no darkness will descend,
for you have loved me forever, and your love will never end

This song is just wow. I mean I loved their other song (mouth like a magazine) but this one easily tops em. Could you refer me to other songs like this either from them or any other gospel minister... God bless.
its true | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/10/10
The only thing that is better than listening to this song is hearing it live. they have only played it live a few times i believe, i am lucky enough to have been there when they played it at C-Stone. great song!
absolutely marvalous | Reviewer: jeremy | 6/28/08
this song is amazing and i can't believe how it has touched my life. Lately I have caught myself separating myself from Jesus and my faith and I listen to this song and it pulls me right back into where i belong. Hats off to showbread
my thoughts | Reviewer: Darshana | 1/29/08
I love to worship to this song.. cause I know that there have been so many times when I come to the Lord like a dirty little child ready for punishment and he just holds me closer. We are so blessed to be allowed into his presence. Showbread's lyrics are very powerful in this song.
Recently introduced... | Reviewer: Avery | 7/31/07
I was on a trip with three of my friends. While on the trip, Jason played this song. In his words, "Showbread hasn't had a deep song in their career, & then they pull this out! It's awesome!" or something to that affect.
I agree. It's grand. =D
