"Sin for Salvation" by Shaun Ruiz--I wrote this after going through a very difficult time in my life

Sometimes temptation is like a stray
You feed it once and never goes away
Before I knew it, I wasn't who I was before
And all I knew was wrong
Didn't seem wrong anymore

Till, one day, I realized
I'd weaved a web I couldn't break
And the weight I put upon myself
Became too much for me to take

Chorus:
Somewhere in the distance
I could hear You call my name
Saying there’s still hope for me
And its not too late to change
But sin for salvation seems
Like such an unfair trade
Why should You have had to die
For the mistakes I’ve made


I found myself divided
By the spirit and the flesh
Undecided whether I should go
To the right or to the left
I kept thinking back
On the life I'd lived
And asking, "Are my many sins
Too many to forgive?"

2nd Chorus:Even after all I’d done
And it seemed all hope was lost
You gave up your divinity
And said “I’ll pay the cost”
You transformed yourself from lion
To the sacrificial lamb
To pay the price of my salvation
Unworthy as I am


Now I come before You broken, Lord
To lift this burden off of me
And to show You I am still the man
That You meant for me to be

I want to live a life that's worthy
Of the price You paid
And to show You that Your
Sacrifice was not in vain

2nd Chorus:Even after all I’d done
And it seemed all hope was lost
You gave up your divinity
And said “I’ll pay the cost”
You transformed yourself from lion
To the sacrificial lamb
To pay the price of my salvation
Unworthy as I am

You took the form of flesh
And died upon the tree
No greater love has been displayed
As the love you showed for me that day on Calvary

Repeat 1st Chorus

It sounds wonderful. This is a good way to vent feelings, I do this too. I've gone through a real tough time, and I wrote an entire story for it. This sounds great, you seem like a good person. =)
