I have thought it through
How can I save man?
From captivity and destruction
What will it take?
For man to be reconciled with Me
So fallen, so gone astray
I am holy, yet I desire to dwell among My people
They are enslaved by their own sins
What seems good to man leads to destruction
I sent my Son
My lamb lead to the slaughter house
A sacrifice acceptable, the price required paid
His blood sprinkled on man
Yet he continues to go astray
I will send a warning
Of the danger that lies ahead
If man continues in the path that he is walking
The enemy of his soul hates and despises him
He wants to destroy him
Because I made man in My image
So I will warn him to turn away from his sin
So that the enemy of his soul will not have a case
Or grounds to torment and hold him captive
Will man listen to Me?
Will he accept and receive My prophet
One who will remind him to look to the cross
To his redeemer, the Christ, so that they may live
Will he kill My massagers and call My servants a mass of tissue
Who have no rights?
Who can be killed at birth?
I am sending them hope!
For in true repentance
There is forgiveness and healing
Oh man will you listen to My warning?
Stop killing my servants and massagers
I have sent them to you for a reason in this season
I am your hope!
