Lyric "The Test For Leprosy"

[Verse 1]
Under the law
Set by Almighty God
The priests had the power
To change your destiny
Festering boils
Chronic disease
For seven days
Complete isolation

[Chorus 1] x2
The test for leprosy
Find you unclean

[Verse 2]
Consigned to neglect
Outside the city gates
You tear all your clothes
And cover your face
One hope you have
Your sores will turn white
Through ritual atonement
Pronounce you clean

[Chorus 2] x2
The test for leprosy
Heal the unclean

Leprosy, leprosy
Leprosy, leprosy

We are all like lepers
Without Christ's love in us
Let him heal you, let him
Will you let him love you?
