The soul that sins shall surely die,
For the wages of sin is death.
God's Word is sure; He cannot lie.
So in fear man draws his breath.
For all have sinned and come short of God's glory.
No one is righteous, not even one!
Can hope be found in the gospel story
For the sinner condemned and undone?
By the deeds of the law can a man be made just?
No! By the law comes the knowledge of sin.
Man's guilt is sure; condemnation awaits us.
Is there hope for the children of men?
Yes, yes, a thousand times o'er!
Hope for the sinner abounds!
Pardon and mercy, grace and much more
In God's holy Word may be found.
For God in His infinite wisdom and love
Provided salvation's plan.
In the fullness of time the Savior, His Son,
Became flesh and dwelt as a man.
The Son's one desire, His purpose in life,
Was to do His Father's good will.
As an innocent sacrifice, He would pay sin's price,
By dying on Calvary's hill.
On an old wooden cross the transfer was made...
Our sins were placed on His head.
Never before was such love displayed
As He suffered and died in our stead!
Justice was satisfied, fulfilling the law,
Leaving mercy to pardon and free.
At the foot of that cross, in wonder and awe,
I found hope for a sinner like me.
Not just a hope akin to a wish
That whimpers and sighs and pleads.
But a hope that is steadfast, unshakable, sure!
A hope that would answer my need.
Call on the Lord in repentance and faith.
Believe in Jesus, the Christ!
You, too, shall find pardon, mercy and grace,
And pass from death unto life!
