I’ve struggled with sin for so long,
Youâ€™ve been so right, Iâ€™ve been so wrong.
When will I triumph over my sin?
When will true closeness to You begin?
At the cross you reply with a strong voice,
“My Son made the ultimate choice,
He took your sin and nailed it there with Him
So that your time being near Me could begin.
So donâ€™t fail to praise Me with all you are
Because your sins were forgiven through His scars.”
Your love for me, o God, is beyond compare,
But Iâ€™ll do all I can to lay my soul bare
So that you can see that my love is true
All my days I will spend praising You.
