Tell Me Again





Tell me again,
Who formed the earth and heaven?
Tell me again
Who parted the Red Sea?
Tell me again, why is it I’m forgiven
When my birthright
Is my iniquity?

Tell me again,
Who left His throne in Heaven?
A perfect Lamb
To be sin’s sacrifice
Tell me again, why is it I’m forgiven
When it is I
So guilty of its price?

Tell me again
A thousand times I’ve heard it
The debt I owed
No riches could afford
Yet, I am free, not because I earned it
But through the blood
Of Jesus Christ the Lord

Tell me again
May I never grow weary
Of this great joy
Of this, a sinner’s boast
Creator, Lord, Redeemer, God of mercy
Left Heaven’s throne
Because He loves us most

 Cho. Tell me again,
Who formed the earth and heaven?
Tell me again
Who parted the Red Sea?
Tell me again, why is it I’m forgiven
When my birthright
Is my iniquity?

Tell me again
May I never grow weary
Of this great joy
Of this, a sinner’s boast
Creator, Lord, Redeemer, God of mercy
Paid sin’s great debt
Because He loves us most
