How Many Lashes
by Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams

Album: The Passion Of The Christ - Songs
by Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams


April 2nd, 2004, 7 pm,
Sitting here, speechless, I'm still kind of in awe,
My mind's frozen, my soul's closed in on what I just saw,
On the big screen, where big things happened, I saw like a nightmare,
Some cats cried, some try to be hard, like they didn't care,
"Mummy, why they did that?" I heard this little girl say,
"Mummy, why did they hurt Jesus?"
Ah, she'll find out someday that the lashes on the back, even though hard to see, each one paints a perfect picture of your love for me.

Lash number one,
For all those times I've turned you away, chasing after worldly things like money and fame,
Lash number two,
For all the nights when I did wrong - see, I wasn't strong enough to be alone,
Lash number three,
'Cause you me loved me, see, it's hard to explain,
You suffered 'cause you knew someday our lives will exchange.

How many lashes for my sins, Lord, did it take?
I suppose we will never know. (since we were not there)

How many lashes did it take, Lord, for that night that I lied?
The night my Mum's cried, 'cause that night she found out I got high.
Number two was for that night, instead of chilling with you, there was this chick that I got with - it was a chick I barely knew,
Number three,
I could go all day, son, about all the stuff that I did, like that day I was talking mad-crazy about leaving my wife and my kids,
I know it's hard to hear, but please let me be real,
Na, I can't lie to me no more - it's the way that I feel.

Lash number one,
For all those times I've turned you away, chasing after worldly things like money and fame,
Lash number two,
For all the nights when I did wrong - see, I wasn't strong enough to be alone,
Lash number three,
'Cause you me loved me, see, it's hard to explain,
You suffered 'cause you knew someday our lives would exchange.

How many lashes for my sins, Lord, did it take?
I suppose we will never know. (since we were not there)

How many lashes?
Just for me,
He did it just...he did it just for me, (just for me)
Just for me,
He did it just...he did it just for me, (this is real love here)
Just for me,
He did it just...he did it just for me, (did it just for me)
Just for me,
He did it just...he did it just for me. (can't you feel it?)

And as this moment comes to an end,
When you look down at the world, I wonder would you do it again?
Was it worth your pain?
Do we embarrass your name?
When you see us at the church, tell me are you ashamed?
You'll get a shout out at the Grammys,
No side B, we'll give you a song, (word up)
Then we'll call you when we need you: when all of our options are gone,
You hung because you loved us, and it hasn't changed today,
At the sight of you still hurting, I feel the same way.

Lash number one,
For all those times I've turned you away, chasing after worldly things like money and fame,
Lash number two,
For all the nights when I did wrong - see, I wasn't strong enough to be alone,
Lash number three,
'Cause you me loved me, see, it's hard to explain,
You suffered 'cause you knew someday our lives would exchange.

How many lashes for my sins, Lord, did it take?
I suppose we will never know. (that's real) (since we were not there)

How many lashes?
Just for me, (he did it just)
He did it just...he did it just for me, (the nails in his hands)
(fade)
