The Lyrics

I spoke the truth at 33
They nailed me up with cruelty
The sky went black, the sun did hide
My Father left my lonely side

Age 34 I never knew
My life was short, but all for you
And when the stone was rolled away
I wasn't there, oh what a day

And those who battered up my face
I forgave and showed them grace
And now I'm sitting on my throne
Beside my Father, in our home
I call to you come talk to me
I want to show you my glory
And everything I did at 33

I left my home when I came down
Oh what a sinful place I found
But that's exactly why I came
To heal, to love, to seek, to save
The rich man and the poor one too
Can follow me and know my truth
Can you become a little child
Believing in one so reviled?

"Remember me", the thief did say
I said, "You'll be with me today"
In my own lovely paradise
Where there's no hatred and no vice
The angel choirs will praise my name
and you will see just why I came
To rescue folks like you, at 33

So don't forget about my pain
In case you think your life's in vain
So few are chosen, many called
Can you hear me above it all?
The world can be a lonely place
But when you're looking on my face
you'll see the love you're looking for
Serenity and so much more

So draw near me, if you dare
Cause I can be found everywhere
When friends and lovers let you down
I'm faithful and I'll be around
So call my name and look for me
I'll show you many mysteries
And all I did for you, at 33

Beautiful. IMO, being in my thirties was great; it allowed me to heal the emotional wounds accumulated in my twenties.
