If we decide to ever transgress the law
There are serious implications;
Ranging from police intervention
To courtroom administrations.
In order to prove our innocence
A lawyer is required;
A mediator with power to set us free
From the line of fire.
A lawyer would plead and intercede
To make a valid case;
To gather all the evidence
Regardless of creed or race.
But when we’re found to be guilty
The jail term awaits,
As the verdict is final and complete
Without further debate.
We all fall short of God’s glory
And have all transgressed His law,
And the wages of sin is eternal death
With the lake of fire in store.
But there is someone who paid the price
Crucifying our sins to the cross,
And whoever pleads guilty in humble submission
Will face no eternal loss.
Our Jesus became our lawyer
Who intercedes on our behalf;
He buried the keys to our well-deserved cell
And saves from the aftermath.
There’s always a price to pay
For all wrongdoing we commit,
And the judge’s fury must be appeased
With a sentence that best fits.
Thank God for our Jesus Christ
As we’re acquitted from our sin,
And covered by His precious blood
So our soul is saved within.
