Over two-thousand years ago a mighty battle was won

When our King died on that cross and declared, “It is done!”

A world full of sin; we were lost in our ways

ALL falling short of God’s glory; righteousness was just a haze

There was handwriting of requirements being held against us

No one could keep all ten, that’s why a savior was a must

Our king set aside His garments and set aside His robe

Humbled Himself to a mere man, bringing truth and grace to show

Having no fault or never committing no sin

He took our criminals death and brought our condemnation to an end

Disarming our enemies from the requirements we couldn’t keep

Giving fresh new hope to all the lost sheep

A worthy sacrifice has finally come!!!

A lamb to cover ALL sins and God gave His only son

Colossians 2:14-15

Beautifully written and passionate piece. I thought I would share with you that the word "used" in the last line through me off a bit. It seems to have a negative connotation that I'm not sure you intended. Maybe "gave" would be a nice replacement? Just a suggestion. Lovely work!

Oh and "gave" also adds a nice little alliteration :).
