I had a dream the other night that I met the lord. She was dressed like a peasant and she carried no sword and I was not afraid when she looked deep into my soul. She spoke: 'Hey there child you are free if you want to go"
Jesus, he walked beside her. He had blood on his hands, had tears in his eyes he said he'd just killed a man. 'But not to worry,' he said, 'it had to be done. That poor sinner's soul it just could not be won.
I asked them if this was how the game was played? they said 'Don't worry son, just don't forget to pray' but I am not the praying, the praying kind of man. No the most you can ask from me lord, is that I do the best that I can.
They just smiled, they knelt on the ground. They didn't say a word, they were waiting on the sound of my voice to say that I admit that I see a God in you. Well there's god in me just like there is a god in you. Trust me when I tell you that there ain't no more judging left to do.
