Like mud in the bottom of a cup of solid gold,
A stain upon the pure, but a veil to cover the soil
From His life I learned perfection, but
His death gave even more
It`s like a diamond promise,
and His love I can`t ignore
To the keep ears of a dog the philosophy is told,
And from the crumbs of His table
Tumble secrets to the prophecies of old
It`s like handing out the keys to the cells on death row,
Now I`m a dead man walking and His cross I`m bound to tow
Don`t you see what He`s done for me?
Did you know His grace would go this far?
The power to forgive and the strength so you can live,
I have become His righteousness
