Sacrifice (lyrics)

by becca   May 31, 2008


I stand ashamed;
burdened by this guilt that holds me down.
In need of grace;
To lift this weight from off my shoulders now.
But there is something real,
In the very air I breathe I feel
A truth of love that saves;
A gift of grace to take my place:

The debt's already paid
The lamb's already slain
The slate's been wiped clean and we're free again.
The fight's already won
The deed's already done
The Father's condemnation; exchanged for the Son...
Sacrifice,
Sweet blood has stained the hills at Calvary
Paid the price,
The debt erased by life that died for me
To set this sinner free
To set me free
Set me free.

I stand amazed.
I can't believe this love You freely give.
I can't contain:
You live to die;
You died so I could live.
And I am beckoned in
With wounds that speak and scars that sing
Of redemption with each word,
That tell of truths I don't deserve:

The debt's already paid
The lamb's already slain
The slate's been wiped clean and we're free again.
The fight's already won
The deed's already done
The Father's condemnation; exchanged for the Son...
Sacrifice,
Sweet blood has stained the hills at Calvary
Paid the price,
The debt erased by life that died for me
To set this sinner free
To set me free
Set me free.

And the bitter sweet scent of myrrh is in the air,
And Salvation's symphony is sounding there,
And there's a figure of man;
Nail marks on His hands;
The afflictions of my cross He chose to bear...

Chorus
