05. Forgiven & Loved

Not Without Love
by Jimmy Needham



 

Tell me Iím forgiven and loved
ĎCause I hear it from the street corner priests
On how God is love and how man can be clean
But my joy has been on holiday
And my peace has almost passed away
Tell me Iím forgiven and free

CHORUS
O I tried and tried to rectify my hopeless situation
But I bought the lie I still have work to do
Now Iím working nine to five like I can earn my own salvation
But there is no condemnation in You

O whisper to me now that itís for real
ĎCause in the silence of these walls righteousness lost its appeal
Dirty deeds have done me in
O but that canít stop the faithful friend
Giving mercy once again as You heal
Here it is Iím feeling it

(Chorus)

O He died, He died to rectify my hopeless situation
And His blood commands my guilt to leave
Now on Calvary I stand
Empty pockets, open hands
O there is no condemnation for me

(Chorus)

Child, youíre forgiven and loved
Child, youíre forgiven and loved
Child, youíre forgiven
And child, you are loved
Child, youíre forgiven and loved

Behind the Song:
ĒYou canít give what you donít have. The thing I struggle with most in my relationship with God is the ability to receive His love and forgiveness. For some reason, I have this crazy notion that if I work really hard I will finally put a smile on the Fatherís face. What I have failed to understand is that the only thing that truly pleases God is God himself. Itís true that there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, but the amazing part of that statement is that it is not based on our deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy. May each of us as believers be able to say with confidence that we are in fact forgiven and loved.Ē Ė Jimmy Needham
