It's my Season of Praise.
By his blood we’ve been acquired / while us, we were still liars / wired to enter the fire / fighting Christ and his light, but / by his grace in giving faith, we’ve been changed for the better / now we’re saved and lift his name and we praise him forever / we, who were once dead and slaves to wickedness / have been changed to accept the gift / and made to be kin in his / grace through the Spirit, y’all / plain, without blemish, ah / and now who’s the one you hearing in our lyrics? God / nobody else can ever pluck us from his hand / there isn’t another being that could ever stand a chance / to his glory / he’s holy / Deo Gloria Soli / to enter in his presence, righteousness is mandatory / do you have that? Neither do I, that’s why I praise Christ / ‘cause he redeemed me, and now I’m justified / and under grace by faith, now I’m seeking him / ‘cause I heard the truth, it set me free from sin! / I’m free
He reigns, he reigns, all creation will proclaim / his majesty his name, God, you have to be praised / elected to be justified when all I'm worth is torment / a recipient of grace you adopt this wretched orphan / Lord, who am I that I am called for your purpose / by You, oh God, who made the universe, my / lips profess your worth up and through my final day / but my God, you are more than my words will ever say / indescribable / you made a radical / change / a capital taking / of my life and gladly rearranging / now I put to death the deeds of the flesh by the Spirit / the mysteries in the Word, yes, he’s revealing / he’s the thing I need to live, giving oxygen competition / not a minute / I can live without him / you can document it / walking with this living God / it isn’t just religion / ‘cause religion ain’t gon’ ever set me free from all my sinning / I’m free
I’m free, but know I used to be free in a different sense / back when my body was an instrument of wickedness / yes, I was in a way free, but check it / I was free from righteousness, not the sting of death / I was still serving sin, but how’s that different from my serving him / if I still call it freedom, what’s the difference if I’m serving sin? / well the difference is that if you serving sin, you’ll surely die / and if you serving Elohim, then you be given eternal life / living it in the presence of the Trinity / and living it with the women and men that trusted in the remedy / and forever never being chained down to enmity again / you see the beauty of the cross is that he set me free / and man, I hope you see that this is just the means, not the ends / he suffered once for sins, that he might bring us to him / who’s him? 1 Peter 3:18 – God / is the Gospel, that’s the point of the cross not / that I’m free
