I really appreciate how this song explores the story of Edmund’s treachery in Narnia and how it is a parable of our own sin and redemption.
Had I seen the melting snow? I saw and trembled For this a power I did not know Though I was bound with chains She was cruel but beautiful And I was greedy And like a slave I then was sold By the way she said my name Father, save me! I the traitor I who knew and ran from Love I can hear the Condemnation In the rhythm of the drums Though I knew all hope was lost And this what I deserved I had been conquered by the frost But on my skin it burned Cause she had power over me At her touch I turned to stone But in her eyes I saw a fear A deeper magic her own And when I looked him in the eyes I felt the weight of all my sin For I knew what the law required A death for death, a traitor's end But when I thought I feel his wrath Despaired and filled with shame He bent down to search my eyes With such love whispered my name Father, save me! I the traitor I who knew and ran from Love Father, can you Hear the Lion It is written Blood for blood
