The Guilty’s Plea

At the word of guilty said;

Fallen down twas my head.

Forgotten He, who for me died;

The Son of God, Christ crucified.

The Serpent’s tongue spews poison out,

To wreck my faith and bring me doubt.

But Sovereign Love shall not fail,

For He who died was raised as well.

Now in Him I find my plea

From guilt and shame, He set me free.

No condemnation nor wrath to face;

No nothing can pluck me from His grace.

Romans 8:33-39 (ESV) – “33Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?  36As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
