The Guilt of Sin

“I’m on my knees and give Him praise”

The guilt of sin lingered in my head
Jesus turned me from my evil ways instead
I no longer look back on those sinful days
Now I’m on my knees and I give Him praise

I knew He’d made in me a positive change
I’m forever blessed and I give Him praise
He loved me enough to die upon the cross
For His loving mercy is never lost
No, His grace and mercy is never lost

He’s my savior now and my truest friend
He’ll love me, I know, ‘till my final end
When I struggled and groaned, and wallowed deep in sin
He chastised my heart and pricked it deep within

I knew He’d made in me a positive change
I’m forever blessed and I give Him praise
He loved me enough to die upon that cross
For His loving mercy, is never lost
No, His grace and mercy is never lost

I no longer carry any weight of guilt
Cause with Him, enduring love will never wilt
He loved me enough to die upon that cross
Now the wage of sin is paid; the debt is tossed

I knew He’d made in me a positive change
I’m forever blessed and I give Him praise
He loved me enough to die upon that cross
For His loving mercy, is never lost
No, His grace and mercy is never lost

Life has trials alone that truly test our faith
To see what God, our Father, has really made
Obedience with prayer must grow and replicate
To build the church that Jesus, our Lord, will save
To build the church that Jesus, our Lord, will save

I knew He’d made in me a positive change
I’m forever blessed and I give Him praise
He loved me enough to die upon that cross
For His loving mercy is never lost
No, His grace and mercy is never lost
