By His Offering (acoustic chronicles)

I recently released a new album (acoustic chronicles) and wanted to give everyone a breakdown of what these songs mean. They are all very deep and biblical so I wanted to make sure and explain them so I have a place for anyone who wants to know all the meaning behind them. Most of the lyrics are old hymns that I revamped to fit my melodies. But this is one of the songs I had the pleasure of writing the lyrics to with some friends of mine. Here they are in full.

By His Offering

In the beginning, God created all

Man sinned and lost hope, darkness in our soul

We can not rebuild, what we have broken down

So God in all mercies smashed His Son to the ground

 

(Chorus)

By His offering, we’ve been set free

 

It starts with Jesus, the Word of God released

Destined to suffer, the Fathers wrath appeased

God thee incarnate, Son of God was He

Lamb to the slaughter, set the captives free

(Chorus)

Bridge:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Three and yet One, perfect God

Father is awesome, Son who is worthy, Spirit who’s holy, perfect God

 

(Chorus)

 

When we set out to write a new song, my friends and I thought, “What better topic to write about than the gospel?” Jesus, “God”, come into human flesh and save those who would love and believe in Him. Those whom He has chosen in fact. So, we wrote a Gospel song. The first verse focuses on the reality of our depravity. We have fallen short of God’s glory and there’s nothing we can do to reconcile us to God. The chorus focuses on the fact that Christ alone has saved His people from their sins. The second verse is a simple verse that glorifies Christ for His sacrifice for sinners. The bridge glorifies the Trinity in the fact that they are all One and yet distinct.

You can listen to song here. By His Offering
