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
