Is this is not a pretty tale?
Is this not a riddle?
A bow shoots arrows through the air
A bow drags notes from a fiddle

But who is the beau of a young girl's heart
That a king may send to battle?

Is this not a pretty tale?
Is this not a riddle?
If red is the breast of soldier's tunic
Hung with a silver medal

And red is the thorn that protects the rose
A deeper red than the petal
How deep is the red our redeemer bled
The debt of our sins to settle?

How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?
How deep is the red our redeemer bled?
How deep is the red?

How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?
How deep is the red our redeemer bled?
How deep is the red?

How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?

Is this is not a pretty tale?
Is this not a riddle?
A bow shoots arrows through the air
A bow drags notes from a fiddle

But who is the beau of a young girl's heart
How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?
How deep is the red?
