lyrics

my life was filled with guilt and shame
my sin a blocking wall
unworthiness was haunting me
was I the least of all?

condemned by my own conscience
a heavy load I bore
Your holiness kept me from You
I couldn’t reach the score

I thought I should know better
I shouldn’t choose sin
those choices never should have been

despising myself
expecting discontent from You
expecting disappointment
my strength alone could never conquer my sin
I never grasped the meaning of love
I believed Your grace covered my sin
but wouldn’t my sin limit your love for me?

I believed your grace covered my sin
and every time I failed I thought
Your power would now leave me
or at least be limited within me

I didn’t understand my sin
never changed Your love for me
You believed in me

I feared the thought
if sin is no concern
would I embrace it over righteousness?
afraid I would
choose darkness over light
as if I needed an outer motive

now I know the cost of sin:
its residue alone
its consequence for me
enough to leave that zone

now I know the love You give
is everything I need
its consequence enough
enough for me indeed

Your perfect love – my mind renewed
no need for guilt and shame
grace is greater than my failures
the change of heart has affected me
instead of crawling far below
unveiled the truth I see

You walk right beside me
a love with no strings attached
to actions or performance
You call me Your child

once and for all
You took all my failures
all my shame and guilt
You believe in me

my strength alone could never conquer my sin
I never grasped the meaning of love
I believed Your grace covered my sin
but would not my sin limit Your plans for me

I feared the thought:
if sin is no concern
would I embrace it over righteousness?

the amendment of the heart has granted me
a life of fulfillment and gratitude
in the victory of Christ
I am set free from the curse of the law
I am free to know the true identity of God

the Father
the Love
the Truth
my Life
