Lord, You are greater than our conscience.
You have gifted us Messiah’s mind.
The summing of our fears, guilt, and chanced ifs
are by the Spirit nullified.
Firstly, your forgiveness fashions
‘round our hearts a mercy balm.
Lastly, we cannot merit the ransom
You paid by heart, foot, brow and palm.
When the mangling of accusation
seeks to steal hope of New Life,
we remember that Resurrection
and Ascension give us rights.
Boldly, as one Body we
approach your Throne with joy and awe,
bestowing on You due honor and glory.
In answer, grace exceeds all law.
