To save us from torments!

Christ’s atonement was infinite.

Pain, inconceivable!

It was infinite hurt and fear.

Unimaginable!

An offering to God!

Jesus ransomed himself for us.

Because of him, we’re free!

Christ’s holy blood paid the ransom.

We slaves can now be free!

Jesus died for humanity.

He died for you and me!

God’s only Son died for mankind.

Despite we’re not worthy!

We’re redeemed through his holy blood.

We’re washed clean in his blood!

Made sinless through his blood!
