OUR ATTORNEY

 
In the middle of the night, they came
He was betrayed by one of His own
Peter cut off an ear in His defense
Now King Jesus stands before Pilate alone

He had no lawyer to plead His case
And there was no such thing as bail
The only outcome He could possibly face
Was a rugged cross, hammer, and nails

Convicted, was beaten, a cat o’ nine tails
And to His rescue, no help would come
Upon His bloody shoulders, a cross was laid
On Golgotha’s hill was crucified, did succumb

If He had wanted, rescuers would have come
Legions of angels would have intervened
Instead, He willingly gave His life for us all
Making sure His love for humanity was seen

With His blood, defense became an offense
And in His death, a victory was won
Satan did his best to overcome and stop it
He was defeated, his power quest was done

Now Jesus is there, pleading in our defense
On our behalf, The Father, He petitions
As our defense attorney, He has no peers
Against Satan, he wins all of the decisions

His best defense tool is His precious blood
Against it, Satan can not possibly win
When we are immersed in that crimson flow
It cleanses us, it washes away our sin

FINALITY

 
In the very near future, it surely will happen
From His throne, our Master will descend
The trumpet will sound and away we’ll go
To meet Him on a cloud, we will ascend

His bride will assemble, praising His name
From our mortal bodies, we will transcend
A new creation through Him we’ve become
Ready to enjoy Heaven’s glorious dividends

The sacrifice that Christ made for us
We will then totally understand, comprehend
To realize that Jesus loved us so much
That on the cross His blood He’d spend

The price that He paid because of love
Was more than a wage or a stipend
Because He died a great victory was won
All of Satan’s plans it did finally upend

But first, there is something we must do
For all our sins we must make amends
Our sin is a putrid stench to our Lord
It’s very presence to Him it does offend

On our knees, we repent, come to Him
In the Godhead, we believe and depend
Now the battle is over, the victory won
From Satan’s grasp, we are finally rend

The abyss that had separated us from Him
Has been repaired, something He did mend
Our eternal home is with the Trinity above
Where their love for us never, ever ends
