not guilty lyrics – mandisa

“not guilty”

i stand accused
there’s a list a mile long
of all my sins
of everything that i’ve done wrong
i’m so ashamed
there’s nowhere left for me to hide
this is the day
i must answer for my life

my fate is in the judge’s hands
but then he turns to me and says

i know you
i love you
i gave my life to save you
love paid the price for mercy
my verdict not guilty

how can it be?
i can’t begin to comprehend
what kind of grace
would take the place of all my sin?

i stand in awe
now that i have been set free
and the tears well up as i look at that cross
’cause it should have been me

my fate was in the nail scarred hands
he stretched them out for me and said

[chorus]

i’m falling on my knees to thank you
with everything i am i’ll praise you
so grateful for the words i heard you say

[chorus]
