The weight of sin, an anchor

Pulling to the sea

Drowning all hope and promise

Killing eternally


I have heard confession

Of prostitutes on drugs

And even several murderers

And countless city thugs

The weight of sin so bleak

They felt God would not forgive

The freedom that they sought

Would help them truly live

They confessed deeds of darkness

And asked forgiveness in Jesus’ name

The cross bore all their punishment

And washed their filthy shame

Loved and free, a jubilee

Through Jesus they overcame
