Cast Aside Your Rebel Flag

My mothers’ lips reciting verses underlined with tears
A revivalist lament

Just another soldier
Dying lonely & betrayed
Clinging to a banner
My beloved’s blood has stained
The colours of a bitter heart,
My standard, borne with pride
Rallied only sorrow to my side

Cast aside your rebel flag,
Lay it down, lay it down
At the foot of Calvary’s cross,
Oh lay it down
Cast aside your rebel flag,
Lay it down, lay it down
The battle’s done, the victory won
So lay it down

I hear voices of those lost in battle
Crying ‘cross the years
My mothers’ lips reciting verses
Underlined with tears
The singing of a silent voice
Whose name I do not know
Beseeching my rebellious heart “come home”
