The ancient Egyptians believed that upon death ones heart was weighed against a feather and only a lighter heart could pass on to face the God of the afterlife, Osiris. This weighing, along with another ritual called the "negative confessional" would resu

Story Behind the Song

I am fascinated by ancient Egypt and although Greek and Roman myths/beliefs are generally known by the general public, little is known about the ancient Egyptian myths, beliefs and history.

Lyrics

Weighing of the Heart
Andrew Bayuk

VERSE
Take me down the steps
unto the place of weigh.
Hold my hand and start to pray.
As my heart is weighed against a single feather
he records my word and deed
I wonder what becomes of me?

CHORUS
Will my heart betray?
Will my heart be true?
Reciting all the things I've I said I never do.
When the balance comes
will the tally fall my way?
What will the neighbors say?

VERSE
I have not been false against my fellow man
I've never killed, I've hardly scammed
I have not transgressed against my truest nature
or stolen grain from fertile land

CHORUS
Will my heart betray?
Will my heart be true?
Reciting all the things I've I said I never do.
Will the tally come to favor my rescue?
What will they think of you?

VERSE
Take me down the steps
unto the place of weigh.
Hold my hand and start to pray.
As my heart is weighed against a single feather
he records my word and deed
I wonder what becomes of me?

CHORUS
Will my heart betray?
Will my heart be true?
Reciting all the things I've I said I never do.
When the balance comes
will the tally fall my way?
What will the neighbors say?

VERSE
Justified I stand before you on this day
True of voice I come your way
Now my word and deed are proven to be true
Grant your power to renew
grant your power to renew
grant your power to renew.
