Guilty

Intro

Stanza 1
They condemned him,
For they said, he was guilty!
They tortured him,
For they said, he was guilty!

Stanza II
They mocked him,
For they thought he was guilty!
They crucified him,
For they thought he was guilty!

They sought and awaited,
F#
The messiah they could not find.
Em
They waited and longed for.
F#                                                      Em 
When he came, they were left behind.

Chorus
Em                                C  
For when he comes back,
Em
We should be prepared.
Em                A
What a pity could it be,
C                     Em
if unprepared running scared.

Em                         C
Let’s remember, though,
Em
guilty we have been.
Em                                    A 
Through his death and resurrection,
C                                —Em        
we are all forgiven.

Stanza III
Because of his love,
We’re saved and no longer guilty!
Paid by his blood,
We are no longer guilty!

Stanza IV
We’re set free.
We’re saved and no longer guilty!
Our sins are forgiven.
We are no longer guilty!

Em
So now let us wait for him,
F#
Be committed to sin no more.
Em
This time on his second coming,
F#                                            Em   
Lamps are lighted and adorned.

Chorus

Em                                C  
For when he comes back,
Em
We should be prepared.
Em                A
What a pity could it be,
C                     Em
if unprepared running scared.

Em                         C
Let us remember, though,
Em
guilty we have been.
Em                                    A 
Through his death and resurrection,
C                            —Em        
we are all forgiven.
