05. Not Guilty

by Mandisa


I stand accused
Thereís a list a mile long
Of all my sins
Of everything that Iíve done wrong
Iím so ashamed
Thereís nowhere left for me to hide
This is the day
I must answer for my life

My fate is in the Judgeís 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 canít 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
ĎCause it should have been me

My fate was in the nail scarred hands
He stretched them out for me and said


Iím falling on my knees to thank You
With everything I am Iíll praise You
So grateful for the words I heard You say


(John 3:16, Romans 3:21-26, Revelation 21:27)

Behind the Song:
ďNot GuiltyĒ is a song that I co-wrote with a guy named Sam Izell and Matthew West and it is a song, I read an e-mail several years ago and Iíve seen it several times thatís all about what it world be like when we die and when we got to sort of that courtroom in Heaven where we are all gonna be held accountable for how we lived here on earth but the fact that I have a relationship with Jesus and the fact that His blood covers me I know and I am guaranteed that I will hear the words not guilty from my Father because Jesusí blood covers me." - Mandisa
