You were near, Though I was distant
Disillusioned I was lost and insecure

Still mercy fought, For my attention
You were waiting at the door, Then I let You in

Trading Your life, For my offenses
For my redemption, You carried all the blame

Breaking the curse, Of our condition
Perfection took our place

When only love
Could make a way
You gave Your life
In a beautiful exchange

My burden erase, my life forgiven
There is nothing, that could take this love away

My only desire, and sole ambition
Is to love You just the same

When only love
Could make a way
You gave Your life
In a beautiful exchange

When only love
Could break these chains
You gave Your life
In a beautiful exchange

Holy are You God
Holy is Your name
With everything I've got
My heart will sing how I love You

    Word's can't describe what the father did for us when he let christ assume our liabilities and take the blame for us, indeed it was a beautiful exchange!!! Love you father

    We are here to fight and to spread the word. God is good! People! Lets rise up and spread the word! Four people together stomping their feet sound like an army... Imagine what all of us sound like! The devil will go flee and sprint away! Because with god all things are possible!

    Sounds identical to every other song hillsong has ever released. Except even less singable that usual. Also, twelve times on the bridge is way too many.
