By The Blood Of The King

The sin of Adam was passed on to me,
Debt handed down from a long family tree,
I was bankrupt working for the things of men,
Earning the payment for the wages of sin.

But Christ paid my debt at Calvary,
I was bought by the blood of the King,
Chosen in love, adopted and redeemed,
I was bought by the blood of the King.

An inheritance was given to me,
I’m sealed with the Spirit, my guarantee,
I’m an heir with Christ, but so undeserving,
No longer bound by sin, yet I’m still struggling.

This inheritance for sinners like us,
Brothers and sisters in the family of God,
And we were once dead, but now we’re alive,
Buried and raised with the Lord Jesus Christ.

For Christ paid our debt at Calvary,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
Chosen in love, adopted and redeemed,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
We were bought by the blood of the King,
We were bought by the blood – of the King.

Behind the lines

Co-written with David Ennis, Drew Pearce, and Kevin Schultz.

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
(Galatians 4:4-7 ESV)
