02. Goodbye Scarlet

Goodbye Scarlet
by Once By Fire

       
Lyrics:

VERSE 1
Always guilty, it seems
You just want me downtrodden
Why do you bring it up
And bring it up again?
Try as you might
to get blood from this stone
But guilt doesn’t live here
and death has gone home…

CHORUS
So, goodbye scarlet
No more tarnish
Vanquished, the stains of this life
It was not within me
To be rid this disease
No more scarlet
He has pardoned
All is made white
All is made white…

VERSE 2
“Why don’t you eat?
You will be just as He”
Pick your poison
And mankind descends
A world in darkness
But not left alone
The paradigm shifts
When the Son gives His own

CHORUS
So, goodbye scarlet
No more tarnish
Vanquished, the stains of this life
It was not within me
To be rid this disease
No more scarlet
He has pardoned
All is made white
All is made white…

BRIDGE
This one piece of evidence
Speaks to my innocence
This redemption
It means my exemption
One sweet-smelling sacrifice
Speaks to my place in Christ
Weighed down and duty-bound but
Found in His favour now…
Found in the Saviour now…

CHORUS
So, goodbye scarlet
No more tarnish
Vanquished, the stains of this life
It was not within me
To be rid this disease
No more scarlet
He has pardoned
All is made white…
All is made white

All is made white.…
