Naked


The choir sings 


Like they'll never hear praise again
Shouts of alto & soprano 
Filled the room with tears 
God's power to disrobe & expose demons 
Walking in human skin 
With scar on face 
And revelation of greatest sin

  4. I very much liked these two lines:

    "Shouts of alto & soprano
    Filled the room with tears"

    Reminds me of a Christmas choir service I went to.
