It all comes down to God —

Not a messiah
Not a prophet
Not a man

Observance of a promise
So graciously God gave
Lessons that were taught us
They are nothing
There is no salvation
Only Judgement Day

Judgement laid
Soul re-paid
Punishment rendered
Sentence served
Grace is given
And the light softly returns

Before me laid the throne
Brightest of all the fires
There is but only one
Lonely accuser comes
Defender holding closely
To the hand on my right

Child peace be in your heart
Your deeds are widely known
You will reap the seeds you’ve sown
All the roses, all the thorns

And the one here on my left
Standing beside the fires
Dealt the blame
Bringing the guilt

Trials by fire
Passions of the heart
Sins of the flesh
Shames of the mind
Sins of the soul

Line on the left
Always the longest
We are told
Through the eye of a needle
We are sown

The fragile fabric
The torn senew
Blessings granted
Blessings lost

Who condemns you brother?
Accuser or Defender
Be forgiven
Sin no more!

It all comes down to God —
