Lyrics

Since The World Didn’t Love Me

(Words and Music by Tennyson Walters)

 

Betrayed by a kiss

Then taken a prisoner

They sought a writ

To take to the governor

 

So they set up court

It was late at night

As they set forth

Me to indict

 

All along

They knew I was innocent

But like a lamb

I put up no defense

 

Since the world didn’t love me

They’re not gonna love you

Since the world didn’t love me

They’ll mistreat you too

For you are mine      

And we are entwined

We share the same bloodline

We are one of a kind

 

Beaten and bruised

I felt the scourge of pain

Falsely accused

Still my course I maintained

 

There is no denying

The father’s truth

What was heaven defying

Is now an earthly pursuit

 

So I was hung on a cross

Paid the ultimate price

To transact the cost

For Heaven’s rights oooh

 

Since the world didn’t love me

They’re not gonna love you

Since the world didn’t love me

They’ll mistreat you too

For you are mine      

And we are entwined

We share the same bloodline

We are one of a kind

 

Don’t be surprised

When the world hates you

When you’re despised

Your character they loot

Your enemy the devil

He first hated me

Oh he revels in the creation of enmity
