redemption lyrics – johnny cash

from the hands it came down
from the side it came down
from the feet it came down
and ran to the ground

between heaven and h*ll
a teardrop fell
in the deep crimson dew
the tree of life grew

and the blood gave life
to the branches of the tree
and the blood was the price
that set the captives free

and the numbers that came
through the fire and the flood
clung to the tree
and we’re redeemed by the blood

from the tree streamed a light
that started the fight
’round the tree grew a vine
on whose fruit i could dine

my old friend lucifer came
fought to keep me in chains
but i saw through the tricks
of six-sixty-six

and the blood gave life
to the branches of the tree
and the blood was the price
that set the captives free

and the numbers that came
through the fire and the flood
clung to the tree
and we’re redeemed by the blood

from his hands it came down
from his side it came down
from the feet it came down
and ran to the ground

and a small inner voice
said, “you do have a choice”
the vine engrafted me
and i clung to the tree

and the blood gave life
to the branches of the tree
and the blood was the price
that set the captives free

and with the numbers that came
through the fire and the flood
i clung to the tree
and was redeemed by the blood

from his hands it came down
from his side it came down
from the feet it came down
and ran to the ground
