I had to give an offering anytime I did wrong;
Whether it was unintentional or deliberate;
The law was a bond; always making me conscious of sin;
Making me recount every misdeed I did;
Whenever I presented my sin offering.
But God had mercy on me;
When He saw the burden was too much for me to bear;
He sent His only Son to die as the ultimate and perfect sacrifice;
So I didnít have to pay for my sins anymore.
All I needed to do was to believe in His sacrifice;
And accept Him as mine;
And it was a done deal.
Now I donít feel burdened anymore;
All I have to do is lay my cares on Him;
And itís all taken away!
When I do wrong and ask for forgiveness,
He forgives me and remembers my sin no more;
I donít have to feel guilty about it;
His blood has made me clean.
This is what the blessed cross did for me;
His death reconciled me back to God.
