Lyrics

Her face shows the weathered lines
Of a life that's spent it's share of time on the wild side
But Sadie carries deeper scars
Broken dreams and promises on the inside

She met a man who said she couldn't lose what God had found
So near the bitter end when she laid her burden down

What would you say if I told you
That she didn't think twice
About trading a Heavenly embrace
For her sad and lonely strife
About taking a royal robe of virtue
For her dirty rags of vice
Yeah, she traded them away
For a Pearl of great price

I have seen another face
Of a man who spends his sunny days living so fine
Much too busy keeping pace
To see the trail of tears he's leaving behind

He cannot hear the voice that calls in stillness and in pain
Proclaiming first as last and poverty as gain

Oh, what would you say if I told you
That he didn't think twice
About claiming a fundamental truth
Instead of transitory lies
Preferring the wisdom of the age
To the simple words of life
Just too high a price to pay
For a Pearl of great price
For a Pearl of great price

The end of earthly dreams is where the paradox begins
Whoever loses his life will take it up again

Oh, what you say if I told you
What my mind cannot explain
The reason I glory in a moment
That brings another man such shame
Preferring to revel in my freedom
Instead of hiding from my blame
'Cause Jesus gave Himself away

Oh, what you say if I told you
That I didn't think twice
About living my life for the Master
Without regard for the price
Oh, He's building the Kingdom of Heaven
With my ordinary life
So I'm giving it all away
For a Pearl of great price

I'm giving it all away
For a Pearl of great price

I'm giving my life all the way
For a Pearl of great price
