Maximilian Kolbe

In a death-camp know as Auschwitz back in 1941
The men from block 14 were made to stand under the sun
In the heat of the day some fell away, some prayed that it would rain
And the dread and fear of death so near drove more than one insane.

Well a prisoner had run away so ten men had to die
In a bunker without food or drink, or a reason why
Well nine men were chosen, but one man chose to go
To give his life for another, a man he did not know

And some hearts can’t be held within brick wall and wire fence
Some hearts have learned to love amid the darkest human sins
And who knows what love might sometimes take or give
For Maximilian Kolbe gave his life so another man might live.

Now there’s a crown as red as roses and there’s a crown as white as snow
For this prisoner of Auschwitz: 1 6 6 7 0
His love was like a light shining hope where hope was dim
‘Cause there ain’t no hell or prison cell where love can’t enter in.

And some hearts can’t be held within brick wall and wire fence
Some hearts have learned to love amid the darkest human sins
And who knows what love might sometimes take or give
For Maximilian Kolbe gave his life so another man might live.
