I stand accused
There's a list a mile long
Of all my sins
Of everything that I've done wrong
I'm so ashamed

There's nowhere left for me to hide
This is the day
I must answer for my life
My fate is in the Judge's hands
But then He turns to me and says

I know you, I love you
I gave My life to save you
Love paid the price for mercy
My verdict not guilty

How can it be?
I can't begin to comprehend
What kind of grace
Would take the place for all my sin?

I stand in awe
Now that I have been set free
And the tears well up
As I look at that cross
'Cause it should have been me

My fate was in the nail scarred hands
He stretched them out for me
And said

I know you, I love you
I gave My life to save you
Love paid the price for mercy
My verdict not guilty

I'm falling on my knees to thank You
With everything I am I'll praise you
So grateful for the words I heard
You say

I know you, I love you
I gave My life
I know you, I love you
I gave My life just to save you
Love paid the price for mercy
My verdict not guilty

Love paid the price for mercy
My verdict not guilty, not guilty

    Not guilty is a song that tells us that we do not have to be afraid that god will not love us because of our sins. God loves every single person. He might not love their sin, but if you ask for forgiveness, god will wipe your slate clean and let you start over. He will not judge you from your sin. "for all for short of the glory of god! "

    In this song. As for me. It's a reminder that no matter who you are. What you are in color/races. No matter how sinful you are, still god is able to love you and forgive you. God knows all our activities in the earth. No matter where you are. You can't hide against god. He is omnipotent and omniscient. God died for us and to save us from all our sins. In the coming judgment day god will going to judge us of all the things that we did in the earth. Now if we sin we should ask forgiveness. We should meant that forgiveness and not to sin again. God is always ready and always there for us. We'll just keep our faith more stronger and keep it burning. Also let's not forget to communicate with god through prayers. Heaven is not really far to reach for us people. It's just a little distance between your knee and the land/ earths solid surface (which means to kneel down and pray). So my brothers and sisters with christ let us always pray and ask guidance from our heavenly father so that we won't be lost in our journey to the new jerusalem. Don't be afraid.
    It is written in the bible found in the book of psalms 23: 1-6. Just read it.
