(from the album The Atonement)

Verse 1:
Here’s a controversial subject that tends to divide/
For years it’s had Christians lining up on both sides/
By God’s grace, I’ll address this without pride/
The question concerns those for whom Christ died/
Was He trying to save everybody worldwide/
Was He trying to make the entire world His Bride/
Does man’s unbelief keep the Savior’s hands tied/
Biblically, each of these must be denied/
It’s true, Jesus gave up His life for His Bride/
But His Bride is the elect, to whom His death is applied/
If on judgment day, you see that you can’t hide/
And because of your sin, God’s wrath on you abides/
And hell is the place you eternally reside/
That means your wrath from God hasn’t been satisfied/
But we believe His mission was accomplished when He died/
But how the cross relates to those in hell/
Well, they be saying…

Lord knows He tried

Verse 2:
Father, Son and Spirit: three and yet one/
Working as a unit to get things done/
Our salvation began in eternity past/
God certainly has to bring all His purpose to pass/
A triune, eternal bond no one could ever sever/
When it comes to the church, peep how they work together/
The Father foreknew first, the Son came to earth/
To die- the Holy Spirit gives the new birth/
The Father elects them, the Son pays their debt and protects them/
The Spirit is the One who resurrects them/
The Father chooses them, the Son gets bruised for them/
The Spirit renews them and produces fruit in them/
Everybody’s not elect, the Father decides/
And it’s only the elect in whom the Spirit resides/
The Father and the Spirit- completely unified/
But when it comes to Christ and those in hell/
Well, they be saying…


Verse 3:
My third and final verse- here’s the situation/
Just a couple more things for your consideration/
If saving everybody was why Christ came in history/
With so many in hell, we’d have to say He failed miserably/
So many think He only came to make it possible/
Let’s follow this solution to a conclusion that’s logical/
What about those who were already in the grave/
The Old Testament wicked- condemned as depraved/
Did He die for them? C’mon, behave/
But worst of all, you’re saying the cross by itself doesn’t save/
That we must do something to give the cross its power/
That means, at the end of the day, the glory’s ours/
That man-centered thinking is not recommended/
The cross will save all for whom it was intended/
Because for the elect, God’s wrath was satisfied/
But still, when it comes to those in hell/
Well, they be saying…
