Theocracy - Absolution Day

Theocracy - Absolution Day

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK42DkmsqzE

The stage is set
A courtroom where I stand shackled in chains
No defense to fight the charges
brought against my name
Guilty on all counts
And the penalty is death

I cannot say a word
because I have no words to say
For I deserve the final judgment
brought on me today
Guilty on all counts
And the penalty is death

"Wait! No more!"
Suddenly another takes the stand
My Advocate
To plead my case, a perfect, blameless man

"I will take his penalty
(I'll pay his price)
Place the judgment all on me
(Not guilty)
And let him go free"

Bound in chains
I owed a debt that I could not pay
Standing guilty in every way
When grace and mercy brought absolution
Adonai, I raise my hands to the sky in praise
For you have taken my sin away
Behold, today is my absolution day

Only the death of the One
could make the sacrifice complete
The Lam has sprinkled His own blood
upon the mercy seat
Absolution day
Burn the stain of sin away

"By my blood
All you heavy laden, enter in
I'll give you rest
So lay your burden down and start again

I've already paid your price
(I've paid your price)
And built a bridge from death to life
To eternal life"

Bound in chains
I owed a debt that I could not pay
Standing guilty in every way
When grace and mercy brought absolution
Adonai, I raise my hands to the sky in praise
For you have taken my sin away
Behold, today is my absolution day

No priest can say I'm worthy
No sacraments or holy laws
can take my sin away
No church can wash my spirit clean
For the scarlet stain that paints my soul to sleep
Runs way too deep

No blessed holy water
Can sanctify me in the eyes of God
The great I AM
But He has made provision
To lift me up and wash me in the blood
Of the spotless Lamb

For Christ alone is worthy
To pay the price to set all sinners free
For even me
When all works fall short and efforts fail
I realize that faith alone's the key
Absolution for all who believe

Lyrics give me goosebumps every time

The thought of Christ standing in my place before GOD and defending me, claiming me as his own, bought and paid for, always brings joy to my soul no matter how much nonsense this world throws at me.

Great song.

"The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle."

Thank you for a bump

Often when I listen to this and other songs by this band I have watery eyes...it's like the words one was waiting to hear ones entire life.
