Lost Unto This World

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Stumble Into Grace (2003).

I was once some mother's darlin'
Some daddy's little girl
More precious than the ruby
More cherished than the pearl.

My heart was full of mercy
And my forehead full of curl
Now I am nothing and
Am lost unto this world.
I am lost unto this world.

They herded me like cattle
Cut me down like corn
Took me from my babies
Before they could be born.

You can blame it on the famine
You can blame it on the war
You can blame it on the devil
It don't matter anymore.
I am lost unto this world.

I was tortured in the desert
I was raped out on the plain
I was murdered by the high way
And my cries went up in vain.

My blood is on the mountain
My blood is on the sand
My blood runs in the river
That now washes thru their hands.
I am lost unto this world.

Can I get no witness
This unholy tale to tell
Was God the only one there
Watching and weeping as I fell.

Oh, you among the living
Will you remember me at all
Will you write my name out
With a single finger scrawl.

Across a broken window
In some long forgotten wall
That goes stretching out forever
Where the tears of heaven fall.

I am lost unto this world...
