I’ve Seen Too Much

“I know it sounds crazy
But I know what I saw
When the sun came up on the brightest day
From the darkest night of all

I saw the Man die
They laid Him in the tomb
And I know ’cause I saw it with my own two eyes
When He stepped into the room

And I’ve seen too much,
Too much to deny
I’ve seen too much,
Too much to say goodbye

So we scattered to the four winds
To tell them what we know
But I get so tired and the doubt creeps in
And the doubt won’t let me go

And it’s all I can do to get up in the morning
All I can do to stand up in the storm
When all I remember’s the passing form
A glimpse of the glory before it was gone

And I get so tired of this ridicule
But I cannot deny what I know to be true
‘Cause I’ve seen too much
What else can I do?

Where else can I go, Lord?
Where else can I go…
But to You?

I’ve seen too many faces
All shining like the sun
I’ve seen too many skies on fire
Like the face of the Holy One

I’ve seen too many eyes wide open
That once were so blind
All burning with the beauty of the same love
The same love that opened mine

And I’ve seen too much,
Too much to deny
I’ve seen too much,
Too many points of light

I know too much,
I saw the scars and touched His skin
That’s how it was,
And I cannot hold it in

I’ve seen so much that cannot be explained
And I realize it’s a mystery of faith
But my friend was dead and He walked out of the grave
And I knew the world would never be the same

I saw too much,
When I looked into the eye
Of the One I love and the One who loves me
And there was nowhere left to hide

I’ve seen too much,
Too much to deny
I’ve seen too much,
Too much to say goodbye

Too many points of light,
Too much to say goodbye.”
