Lent 31: Romans 5: 6 - 11

While we were still sinners …

Trapped in the well of darkness,
Trapped in the well of shame,
Hopeless, benighted, helpless,
And yet to me He came!

Burdened beyond my bearing,
Broken beyond repair,
Lost in death’s darkest valley.
And yet my God was there!

Crippled beyond all movement,
Helpless to fight or flee,
Yet God came to my rescue,
Utterly loving me.

Ransomer and Redeemer
Willingly paid the price;
Conquered hell’s deepest darkness
With His own sacrifice.

I sing His praise forever.
I sing because I’m free.
I sing unmeasured glory,

Because He first loved me!
