In today’s world, the way we live
stamps us with but one word: “condemned.”
Christ has another choice to give,
He offers us the word: “redeemed.”
Living is always full of strife,
temptation lures us to give in.
Our deeds can’t buy eternal life;
we can never outweigh our sin.
For us it seems “justice” means doom
when our life draws down to its end.
Still, there’s a beacon in the gloom;
a choice on which we can depend.
Christ died on the cross, paid our debt.
Give your life to Him; your Future’s set.
