I went to the scene of the crime
And found that the killer was us,
And found that the victim was us...
As guilty as guilty can be,
As dead as a dead man can be.
I stood there like stone for a time
And thought, is there hope yet for us?
Is goodness all banished for us?
God's light found out even that place.
It glowed with great mercy and grace.
Blood-purchased, we're rescued by Christ,
We're innocent, clean as fresh snow
And living forever, you know.
...the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. (Romans 3:22-25)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
