"Adoption" Lyrics

© 2013 Charmaine Brown & Jason Brown


Breath falters in failing lungs / Blood streaming from grief-filled wounds
he day of my adoption, adoption, day of my adoption
round shaking as death comes close / Sky gaping as thunder roars
he day of my adoption, adoption, day of my adoption

Sweet crimson ransom for my redemption
Precious drops of blood purchased my freedom
Now grace, no sweeter sound
By grace, the lost is found, found

Rags filthy have been replaced / Made holy by robes of grace
he day of my adoption, adoption, day of my adoption
tains guilty are blotted out / Death's verdict forsaken now
he day of my adoption, adoption, day of my adoption

Sweet crimson ransom for my redemption
Precious drops of blood purchased my freedom
Now grace, no sweeter sound
By grace, the lost is found, found

Just as the east can never find the west
Just as the night will never know the sun
So is the curse of my impending death / So far from me, so far from me
Just as the east can never find the west
Just as the night will never know the sun
So is the curse of my impending death so far from me / No longer binding

Sweet crimson ransom for my redemption
Precious drops of blood purchased my freedom
Now grace, no sweeter sound
By grace, the lost is found, found
