How could he live?
How could he rise and walk away?
How could he live today?
How could he roll the stone away?

How could he touch?
How could a man such as he
Open a heart like mine?
How could he know my life?

I heard the words he said
As they gathered 'round
I saw the things he did
And I wondered how -- will my heart allow?

How can I know?
How can I see and not believe?
How can my world remain?
How can my heart refrain?

I saw them run away
Out of fear of him
Only a few had stayed
And took his life within, took his life within

What can I give?
How can I right my life with his?
How can I live today?
How can I roll the stone away?
How can I roll the stone away?
I lift mine eyes; the cloud grows thin;
I see the blue above it;
And day by day this pathway smoothes
Since first I learned to love it.
