Weight of Sin

I have seen the heavy weight of sin

I’ve allowed it to pull me in

It’s blinding and alluring

Unrelenting and dangerously bold

I chased it and I needed it

Until it grabbed a hold

It started to pull me under

Till I couldn’t come up for air

And everything around me

Crumbled with despair

I was left in the wake

Feeling empty but not alone.

For then is when I saw it

Jesus sitting on His throne

I’ve seen sins power and destruction

Felt my heart blinded and controlled

Seen devastation in life

When I don’t believe and let sin unfold

But He’s offered me freedom

He has overcome

He defeats the darkness

And He’s the Only One.

To rescue, redeem and set me free.

To break all chains and bring me peace
