As I stood inside the courtroomThe judge came walking inThere was One who stood beside meA compassionate friendAs he spoke my situationI knew that he was in controlOf the destiny of my eternal soul
With a hush the crowd awaitedTo receive the words he'd sayA finality was pressingLike no other dayTo reveal my destinationThat was what I soon would knowTo eternity, where was I to go?
CHORUSYes, your honor I'm at your mercyYou can do with meJust as you pleasePlease rememberMy testimonyThe blood of JesusCovers me
When the time came for the verdictThe anticipation roseBut the people knew too wellThe path in life they choseThose who had not cared to answerWhen in life he gave the callOr had known his grace and loveOnly to fall
But as he looked in my directionI was not afraid'Cause the nailed-scarred handsWere there defending meThen he rose to give the answerAnd we bowed unto the LordHe said "Well done my childNow great is your reward"
