Put forth, by the hand of God
it was He
chosen to go?
How I've act, yet (don't) understand?
The gift of God
Has been given by His Son

I am in Christ
the son of God
I am in Christ
no longer condemned
I am in Christ
the son of God
I am in Christ
resurrected

Who can be against me
Who can compromise
The power of He is resting
It will glorify

Laid back, before your eye
It can only come this way
The price is paid by His blood
All I ask is who am I?

I am in Christ
the son of God
I am in Christ
no longer condemned
I am in Christ
the son of God
I am in Christ
resurrected

The lines I have
The lines of faith
The lines of pain and true belief
God has come
The time has come
to take hold of the promise
of the promise
of the promise

The time has to come to take hold
of the blood
of the blood
of the blood

    General Commentw00t, somebody finally got brave and posted these lyrics!
    good job man. just a couple of things that i'm not sure about:

    i've found another guy's transcription (here: periodicalsong.blogspot.com/2008/01/…) that first verse is tough to decipher isn't it?

    here's what he thought the first verse was. i think that the first line might be right(though i do think that it ends with "by the hand of God"); the second line i'm pretty sure is correct; the third line i'm really doubtful of, it might be right, but the "don't" makes to many syllables. i think it probably just ends with "understand" not "don't understand" or even "yet don't understand" i think the "yet" might be a different word, but i'm not sure; but the fourth line is definitely right. gosh, why couldn't he do it more clearly:

    "Blood brought as an act of God
    I am he the chosen to go
    How I've acted yet [don't?] understand
    the gift of God has been given by His Son"

    the chorus is pretty clear and you got it perfect. the little bridge thing after the chorus.. good except for the last word of the third line, but i don't have any alternatives, and the other guy's lyrics i found agree with you so i guess w/e.

    second verse, good. i'd say that you got it more right than the other guy did, except for one little word: the price is paid BY his blood. ik, it sounds a little like "for" but it's the only thing that makes theological sense, and the last part of the word sounds a lot more like a "y" than an "r"

    neways, as for the outro thing, i think that the other guy got it just about right, i've just got a couple of notes. i definitely agree with him about the first part, the lines have an implied "i need" b4 them (the first two do that is). i haven't any idea what the 3rd line is. i don't think that either of you got it quite right, but (again) since i don't have any alternative to suggest, w/e. you both got the 4th line right, it's definitely "God has come" idk where he got the idea that it might be "cornerstone" ::\ and on the last line, i think that it's first "of" then "you're":

    "The lord to heal
    The lord to breathe
    The world to be I don't pity
    God has come (/Cornerstone?)
    The time has come
    So take hold of the promise
    [Of/You're?] the promise"


    either way, great job on the lyrics man, amazing song.

    General Commenthere are the correct lyrics, correct them:

    Birthright by the hand of God. I am he, chosen and called.
    I have answered and understand. The gift of God has been given by his Son.

    I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, no longer condemned.
    I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, resurrected.

    Who can be against me, who can compromise?
    The power of He is resting, I will glorify.

    Laid bare, before your eyes. It can only come this way.
    The price is paid, by His blood. All I ask is who am I?

    I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, no longer condemned.
    I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, resurrected. (resurrected, resurrected)

    The right to live, the right to breathe. The right to be and to believe.
    God has come, the time has come to take hold of the promise, of the promise, of the promise.
    The time has come to take hold of the Blood, of the Blood, of the Blood, of the Blood...
