“The Trampling of My Courts”

“When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?”
– Isaiah 1:12 –

I was lost and alone,
behind these bars of steel.
Afraid of what was ahead of me,
with no one to appeal.

I heard of a man named Jesus,
so I dropped to my knees.
As tears ran down my face,
I cried out, “Jesus, heal me please!”

I confessed my sins to Him,
from the bottom of my heart.
He said to me, “Your sins are forgiven
and I have loved you from the start.”

Thank you, Lord Jesus for saving me,
and for all your words of truth.
He said, “All these times I waited on you,
since you were a youth.”

He was obedient to His father’s will,
even to the cross of Calvary.
So He could fill me with His holy spirit,
and His unconditional love for me.

I am here to tell you,
if you’re lost and without appeal.
Call upon the name of Jesus
and by His blood you too can be healed.

“When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?”
– Isaiah 1:12 –
