 This song has been itching my brain.  If you've read the Chronicles of Narnia, or seen the movie for that matter, then you know who Aslan is.  He represents Christ, the King of kings, who laid down his life to save his people who where without hope, destined for destruction.  This song is such a humbling reminder that we can't and don't come to God on our own terms, but he is the only one who can save our souls.  We don't manipulate God and we can't demand anything from him.  He is the Lord, God, King of the Universe, Sovereign Over All, and we are the lost and fallen wretched creatures of Eden, saved by unbelievable grace.

Don't stop your crying on my account
A frightening lion, no doubt
He's not safe, no he's not safe
Are you tempted now to run away?
The King above all Kings is coming down

But He won't say the words you wish that he would
Oh, he don't do the deeds you know that He could
He won't think the thoughts you think He should
But He is good, He is good

I know you're thirsty, the water is free
But I should warn you, it costs everything
Well, He's not fair, no He's not fair
When He fixes what's beyond repair
And graces everyone that don't deserve

No one knows Him whom eyes never seen
No, I don't know Him but He knows me
He knows me, He knows me

Lay down your layers, shed off your skin
But without His incision, you can't enter in
He cuts deep, yes He cuts deep
When the risk is great and the talk is cheap
But never leaves a wounded one behind

*I couldn't find a link to the actual song, but this cover isn't bad.
