You keep telling us how bad we are

You keep telling us that God is mad

You keep telling us we reek with sin

You keep telling us thereís no chance to win.

Not just some of it was forgiven

Not just some of it was put to death

Not just some of it descended into to hell

Not just some of it ascended into Heaven.

The untouchable were healed

The condemned were released from Shoal

The unheard gained an eternal advocate.

The curtain was torn asunder

The perfect, perfect sacrifice was made

God could look with love upon His created

The sin obstacle died with the King.

Let’s hear about the truth

Let’s hear about the way out

Let’s hear about what’s already ours.

It don’t matter what you wear

It don’t matter what you’ve said

It don’t matter where you’ve been

It’s all been reconciled and you’re free.

We can’t overcome the transgressions

If we could the King died for nothing

Preach and teach the truth

We are and were powerless.

The great Forgiver who died for us

He’s the One with the power

And the grace

Show us the way to Him not to the sin.
