lyrics

for by the works of the law
shall no flesh be justified
(Galatians 2:16)

history repeats itself
it has been done to death
thinking one could live a life
deserving righteousness

the purpose of the law
was not to save us
just to convey to us
the essence of His character

setting a standard
we’d never reach
we were doomed to fail

some millenniums ago
according to the law
sacrificing spotless lambs
for the sake of vindication
this was an indication
a shadow from a future act

Christ is the end of the law
the start of a new era
the cause of the shadow
the completion of the plan

Christ is the fulfillment of the law
the beginning of an era
the proof of the shadow
the completion of the rescue plan

you may say
you’re not a sinner
try to do right by your fellow man
but in contrast to
the stunning glow
of purity as white as snow …

… we are all sinners
you won’t find a righteous man
whether searching high or low
so take comfort you’re not alone
all have sinned and come short
of the glory of God

you cannot accomplish righteousness
just receive it as a gift
only faith in Christ can save you
not a graveyard shift

cursed are the ones who fail
to obey the law in every detail (Galatians 3:10)

Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating cursed life
by absorbing it completely into Himself (Galatians 3:13)

sin is not counted where there is no law (Romans 5:13)
so if you’re with Christ you can’t sin (1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18)
so if you’re with Christ, you are under grace (Romans 6:14)

you were in a court of law
guilty as the devil’s claw
waited for the verdict
Christ stepped in
He took your fall
served your sentence
returned your call
