Doin’ What It Ought To (Song)

There’s the Son of Man
Walkin’ by the seaside
The Son of man
Doin’ what He ought to
Showin’ us the power from heaven above
Showin’ us the power of His mighty love
There’s the Son of Man
Walkin’ by the seaside
Come, come, come.

There’s the Son of God
Prayin’ in the garden
The Son of God
Doin’ what He ought to
Takin’ all the weight of the world on Him
Takin’ on the weight of the world of sin
There’s the Son of God
Prayin’ in the garden
Watch and pray

There’s a bloody back
Standin’ in the courtyard
A bloody back
Doin’ what it ought to
Took all my sin and my guilt and shame
Washed me clean in the love of His mighty Name
There’s a bloody back
Standin’ in the courtyard
Healed, healed, healed.

There’s a wooden cross
Standin’ on the hillside
A wooden cross
Doin’ what it ought to
Took all my sin and my guilt away
Washed me clean in the blood
And I’m here to say
There’s a wooden cross
Standin’ on the hillside
Saved, saved, saved.

There’s an empty tomb
Standin’ in the garden
An empty tomb
Doin’ what it ought to
He rose from the dead on the third day
Ascended into heaven and I’m here to say
There’s an empty tomb
Standin’ in the garden
Free, free, free.

There’s the Lamb of God
Standin’ in the heavens
The Lamb of God
Doin’ what He ought to
Intercedin’ for you and me
Cause He paid the price on Calvary
There’s the Lamb of God
Standin’ in the heavens
I’m guilt free.

There’s the Word of God
Standin’ in the heavens
The Word of God
Doin’ what it ought to
Healing, saving, forgiving me
Washin’ me free in the blood of the Lamb you see
There’s the Word of God
Standin’ in the heavens
Washed and clean.
