I didn’t have a whole lot of time today to write a blog post, but I do want to share this video. It’s lyrics really speak to the deepest parts of who I am.

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of  your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation —if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.”–Colossians 1:21-23

I was once a dead man

A stranger with no home

I stood opposed to God himself

And yet He pardoned me

With all my heart and the fiercest will

Desired not but to thieve and kill

I hadn’t a thought of peace, but war

Surrender was not what I’d endure

I was a murderer filled with lies and deceit

Faced with my list of crimes that I would always repeat

Deliver me! Wake me up from this damning sleep

I’m surrendering! Pull me out from this wickedness

In this thieving heart of stone

I realized all these sins I could not atone

I was a murderer filled with lies and deceit

Faced with my list of crimes that I would always repeat

I was once a dead man

A stranger with no home

I stood opposed to God himself

And yet He pardoned me

So just at the right time when we were dead in our sins

You took this heart of mine and gave me life again

You gave me life again

This is where I begin

So far apart and a debt to fulfill

This purchase bought on redemption’s hill

An ailing disease I couldn’t cure

Oh this grace! How rich and pure!

Abide in me, my God! I am found in You

Pardon me, my God! You know my deepest thoughts

Deliver me from sin! I am made anew

I’m surrendering this heart! For which your blood it bought

The mob they yelled and screamed for justice

That wrath was ours we are to blame

You made a spectacle of rulers

Denying You of a king’s fame

Having crushed the written cannon

That wrote of all our guilt and shame

Displayed upon the tree it was nailed

The saving power of Your name

For I was once a dead man

A stranger with no home

You saw this wretch

And You gave him life

Forever I’ll praise You!

I will praise You!
