The Lyrics

John 19:1-5 "Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!"
I love the scripture page
for giving me light.
You may think you're good,
it don't make a difference.
Learn the wrong from right.

As I
learned of the sinner's curse,
stared at a Bible verse.
The words are stuck in my mind.
Jesus red, head to feet,
with little left to bleed.
Who was I? Lost and blind,
pretending I had what I need.

Religion disregard.
It won't clean up your heart.
Jesus saved my soul.
In heaven I'll thank Him for the love He showed,
cuz He wants us all to go.
That's why I want you to know

I'm trusting in the man in the scripture.
Christ Jesus is the only way.
And no message could have been any richer.
If you wanna make it to a better place,
you can't do it yourself, it's through faith by grace.
(Na Na Na, Na Na Na, Na Na, Na Nah)

I'm benefiter of
a selfless act of love.
In my place Christ Jesus died.
He made heaven my home,
and I'll bow at His throne.
Can't you see, it is free?
I'm getting there through faith alone.

They told how Christ was scarred,
I asked Him in my heart,
and He washed me clean.
Won't doubt my salvation; it is guaranteed,
cuz His blood has covered me.
Just call on Him and you're free!

I'm trusting in the man in the scripture.
His blood will have my sins erased.
And no message could have been any richer.
If you wanna make it to a better place,
you can't do it yourself, it's through faith by grace.

I'm trusting in Christ Jesus the Saviour.
God's blood will have my sins erased.
And no scoffer's gonna change my behavior.
If you wanna make it to a better place,
you can't do it yourself, it's through faith by...
grace!

I'm trusting in the God of the scripture.
(Oh yeah!)
I asked Him in my heart today.
(Now I'm saved!)
No message could have been any richer.
(If you wanna make it to a better place,)
(you can't do it yourself, it's through faith by grace.)
(You better get it right, while you're still alive.)
(Put God's words in your heart)
They'll renew your... your mind!
That man...
(Trust the man in the scripture, Oh yeah!)
(He saved me and He'll change my ways.)
(Give Him praise!)
No message could have been any richer.
If you wanna make the world a better place,
wait for Jesus' return, and He'll free some... space!
Hoo! Hoo!...
(Na Na Na, Na Na Na, Na Na, Na Nah)
Hoo! Hoo!
Heaven will be good, yeah.
Yeah Yeah! Yeah Yeah!...
(Na Na Na, Na Na Na, Na Na, Na Nah)
Oh no, no no...
You gotta have some faith.
Admit that you're no good.
Come on!
(Faith...)
Can't save yourself.
You know... you've got to ask Him right now.
(Yeah! Grace through faith!)
You've got to have some faith, today!
Hoo!
(man in the scripture)
You got to-
You got to trust Jesus Christ, right now
Hoo!
(Yeah!)
You know-
(Have some faith!)
You've got to trust that man, the Lord
(trust in the scripture)
You've got to choose. Come on. Come on.
You got to...
Look up! Look up! Look up!
(Yeah! Grace through faith!)
Look up and ask for grace now.
(Christ is the Saviour.)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Aaow!
(Yeah! Grace through faith!)
Gotta have some faith.
Come on! (Trust in the Saviour.)
You know it!
You know it!
You know it!
You know.
(Faith.)
Have some faith.
