This planet’s not my home. I am an alien here.
This place is just a hardened shell encasing sin and fear.
The shell is hard to crack. There’s only one who can.
He is the Lord of heaven. True God and Son of man.
He came to save this world, from punishment and death.
The ransom paid in full, with His last dying breath.
We now can face our death with peace and confidence.
He bought us for His own with his own recompense.
Now arm us with your truth. Give us a faith of steel.
Defend us in our darkest hour, for you know how we feel.
You walked within our shoes, the price you paid immense.
You lift us from the depths of hell. New life will now commence.
