In My Place

image

A perfect love upon the cross
He bled and died for me
He bore my sin and cleared my name
His suffering set me free

A crown of thorns pressed in His head
Blood running down His face
The punishment that I deserved
He took it in my place

Freed

FreedChains are gone

 

To You I give my heart, Lord

broken, tattered, and torn

I know You’ll mend each shattered piece

And pull out all the thorns

 

Your love erases each new pain

It dries each tear I shed

You listen to each spoken word

And answer prayers unsaid

 

Without You life is nothing

So I give You all I am

Your pain and suffering saved my soul

I’ve been freed through the blood of the Lamb

Under the Blood

Under the Blood nothingbutthebloodofjesus

 

Under the blood

We’re free from sin

Jesus has cleansed us

From deep within

 

Under the blood

There’s nothing to fear

Our merciful Saviour

Will always be near

 

Under the blood

We’re shielded with grace

Through mistakes and imperfections

We need only to seek His face

 

Because of the blood

We need not fear death

Christ died for us

So with eternal life we could be blessed
