Surely from birth my sins are more, than the hairs on my head,

my guilt so deep it overwhelms, a heavy load I cannot bear

With jealous fire, my inmost parts, Your Spirit probes,

You hem me in, these bones You crush, by Your arrows I am brought low

The serpent mocks, that ancient foe, as You put me to the test,

His finger points, his venom drips, His accusation means my death

But even so, I’ll look to You, O God Most High,

For though I’m dressed in filthy rags, You’ve paid a ransom for my life


O my God don’t put me to shame, though You bring the rod, I will trust Your name

For even though my sin is great, a heart that’s Yours You will vindicate

And in the end, when Your work is done I will see the face, of Your Holy Son

With my flesh renewed, and my joy complete, You will crush my foe under Your feet


So even though my heart is dark I will come into the light

As I cry out to my high priest, You will come and purify

As I appeal, to my great King, for a conscience clean and white

I’ll make my boast in Your cross in Your eternal sacrifice

Enthroned on high, You mediate Your covenant of life

My enemy by love disarmed, because You paid the price

So I will seek the Holy One while You may yet be found

This is the ark that I will build until the day when You come down


Behold, the way of God with sinners like me, behold His steadfast love, His tender mercies that set us free

Behold, the Lord’s great name, full of compassion and grace, behold, His loyalty to a heart that seeks His face
