You take my broken halleluyahs.

And all my faithless amens.

You collect my desperate tears.

And all my consuming guilt.



In return, my praise is mended,

As in humble surrender and exchange I bend,

Only to rise singing songs of deliverance,

The shackles are off my feet so I can dance.

And all my burdens I have cast

On the only friend I have found to be faithful,

Who will all my sorrows share.

Because He knows my every weakness,

I took it to my Lord in prayer.

Just as He prayed to the Father for my forgiveness when every sin on Him was laid.

With His final declaration of ‘IT IS FINISHED’, this gift of love and righteousness slipped into my possession.

In a momentary fashion, damnation was exchanged for salvation.

Now I am His and He is mine.

Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

My Comforter, my All in All,

Here in the love of Christ I stand as all my guilt is erased.



Jesus You are

My High Priest and Burden Bearer.

A friend through it all.

Sweet Jesus, You are

The satisfaction to my desperation.
