Written In The Scars

This song is by Gary Chapman and appears on the album Shelter (1996).

We're all looking for direction
Who to be and where to go
When the answer to life's question
Was carved in flesh two thousand years ago

It's on His feet
And on His hands
Where the nails met
The Son of God and Man
It's on His side
And on His head
Where the Savior of the world
Was pierced and bled
For every soul, yours and mine
Trapped behind sins lonely bars
The answer to this life
Is written in the scars
It's written in the scars

There is laughter in the crying
There is life there in the tomb
There is living in the dying
There is healing, there is healing in the wound

It's on His feet
And on His hands
Where the nails met
The Son of God and Man
It's on His side
And on His head
Where the Savior of the world
Was pierced and bled
For every soul, yours and mine
Trapped behind sins lonely bars
The answer to this life
Is written in the scars

It's on His feet
And on His hands
Where the nails met
The Son of God and Man
It's on His side
And on His head
Where the Savior of the world
Was pierced and bled
For every soul, yours and mine
Trapped behind sins lonely bars
The answer to this life
This mystery of life
Oh, the answer to this life
It's written in the scars
It's written in the scars
It's written in the scars
