shai linne - Atonement Q and A
(from the album The Atonement)
© copyright 2008

Verse 1:
Who is God? God is the universe’s Creator/
And Sustainer plus the only Savior, there is no one greater/
He triune, holy, omnipotent, omniscient, absolute/
Loving, sovereign and righteous are a few of His attributes/
How do we know this? Well, we know this from the Bible/
Where God has revealed Himself- anything else is just an idol/
What’s the Bible about? Man’s complete ruin in sin/
And what God has done in Christ to bring us to Him again/
What is sin? Sin is the breaking of God’s law/
Plus our condition, which means from birth we all got flaws/
What’s the result? The result is by nature we’re God’s enemies/
And must pay the penalty unless God provides the remedy/
What the remedy? The remedy is the cross of Christ/
Where He suffered all the strikes for the lawless type/
I’ve been rescued by the Lamb, I’m convinced that He’s risen /
And blessed is the man whose sins are forgiven!

Just fall back, and with the eyes of faith/
Behold the beauty of surprising grace/
Because the Lamb has died, third day He had to rise/
He’s magnified- God’s wrath is satisfied/
Just fall back- there’s an atonement now/
The cross of Christ is holy ground/
Because the Lamb has died, third day He had to rise/
He’s magnified- God’s wrath is satisfied.

Verse 2:
Regeneration- the Holy Spirit’s true work in His love/
To the elect, who receive new birth from above/
Expiation- expiation means God’s removed my filthiness/
The old testament type was the goat into the wilderness/
Redemption- we’ve been freed from slavery to sin/
And His very own blood is the price He paid, my friend/
Propitiation- Propitiation means since the Lamb has died/
His work is finished- God’s wrath is satisfied/
Adoption- adoption means God is now my Father/
I got the hottest Poppa and by the Spirit holler Abba/
Reconciliation means there’s no more enmity/
God is now a friend to me, we’re no longer enemies/
Justification- God declares us righteous/
Sanctification- we’re being made into His likeness/
Glorification- that’s what happens at the finish/
When God conforms believers perfectly to Christ’s image!


Verse 3:
God’s grace is magnificent, He slayed His innocent/
Son- through faith and repentance we get the benefits/
What is faith? Faith is a gift from God- when we receive this/
We trust and treasure the person and finished work of Jesus/
Repentance? Repentance is turning from your sin/
And trusting Christ as the Spirit cleanses you within/
What is grace? Oh, grace is unmerited favor/
Our inheritance major ‘cause we cherish the Savior/
Right, and if I may quote again, we were doomed with Satan/
But believers get Jesus’ righteousness through imputation/
Imputation? God takes Jesus’ righteousness amount/
Through faith He credits it into the Christian’s account/
Anything else? Well, I guess this overview must suffice/
But none of this is possible apart from union with Christ/
And finally, once you know the ways of the Lord than the/
Only thing that you can say is Soli Deo Gloria!
