Win My Soul

I have mentioned Ross King before; Mike has known him for a few years, often organizing concerts at our church. We really enjoy his music, particularly his poignant lyrics. He released a new worship album this year, and I LOVE it. We sing a few of the songs at Redeemer, and I am just so thankful for how the Lord has gifted him with words.
 
You should check out his music. He's even having a sale! :)
 
I have had this one song running through my brain for a few weeks now, and I woke up with it on my heart this morning. You know those times when you just feel broken and defeated, and when you come face to face with the cross, all you can do is sing with all your being to Jesus? I probably need a lot more moments like that, but I am so thankful for the Lord's grace. And this is a good song for those moments.
 
In evil, long I took delight, unawed by shame or guilt
My soul as cold as black as night, my heart so unfulfilled
Until I saw Him on the cross, in agony and blood
I knew His pain, His death, His loss, were evidence of love
 
His broken flesh, His lowly state, I never will forget
This humbling truth I can't escape, I sentenced Him to death
My sin, the crime, that led Him there, my punishment He bore
But by His wounds, my life was spared and freed forevermore
 
Praise the One who climbed the hill, and stormed the very gates of hell
Went to war with death itself to win my soul (x2)
 
And sin no longer rules my heart, it has no hold or sway
For Christ controls my every part, and guides me in His way
I'm free, I'm free, I will proclaim, awakened by His love
My life, my all, for Jesus' name, there is no name above
 
When finally I complete my task, I'll stand before my God
My clothes shall be as spotless as the Lamb who spilled His blood
And when I hear the voices raised of all the saints as one
I'll gladly join to should His praise...and this will be my song
 
Praise the One who climbed the hill, and stormed the very gates of hell
Went to war with death itself to win my soul (x2)
