The Price that was Paid

The price that was paid
that we would live again
taken on by our savior
taking on our sin

Bearing our shame to the cross
not for what we had done
only by the grace of Christ
is the battle won

We rise with him
on the last day
our lives redeemed by his blood
for this gift he came

Down from heaven above
to walk as a man
his love knows no end
from the beginning just the same
