Ransom for Many

lyrics

You formed me so long ago
Before I had a chance to meet you,
But you've known me through all these years
You've been calling me toward your life

You're the first and you are the last
It was you who hovered over the waters
And in the ugliness of who we can be
You showed you'd do anything for me

When you made yourself the least in this world of misguided thieves
Who didn't know how to love,
Who didn't know how good you are, Jesus
You looked right at me when you forfeit the last of your life
And took me upon your back
You showed me that your love conquers death
Father you,
You're so good to me

In the middle of our pain and fear
When my anguish was as deep as the ocean
You used the currents to bring me near
enclosed my hurt in your boundless love

You're holy; I love you so
And in loving you I've found my purpose
As your servant I'll ever be
In your story I get set free

Will you make me the least in this world of misguided thieves
And teach us how to love
And teach us how good you are, Jesus
You looked right at me when you forfeit the last of your life,
And took me upon your back
You showed me that your love conquers death
Father you,
You're so good to me
