SORRY Phil Keaggy Band - 1977 There's a story of ten virgins Who went out to meet the Groom Five of them were foolish But their beauty was in bloom They took no oil with their lamps To see them through the night They thought they'd be alright And ready The other five were very wise And made provision for the night They carried extra oil And their lamps were burning bright Then one by one they fell asleep The Bridegroom had delays Then there came a messenger Who said He is coming His waiting Bride to take He's coming The choice is yours to make Come and greet him He'll soon be at the gate Will you meet him Before you realise that it's too late They all arose and trimmed their lamps Knowing they would soon see him The foolish then discovered That their lamps were growing dim Share with us your oil We've run out of our supply Then the wise would answer them And cry We're so sorry There's not enough to take So sorry The choice was yours to make Now both hurry He'll soon be at the gate Now you worry Although you knew that it was getting late While they went to make their purchase That was when the Bridegroom came The ready ones went with him To the feast that bore his name The others then returned and said "Lord, let us come in too" But he answered "I do not know you" They were sorry Don't make the same mistake So sorry The choice is yours to make Come and greet him He'll soon be at the gate Will you meet him Before you've realised that it's too late (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2005)
