[chorus]
You don't have the right to remain silent
If you've been arrested by God's grace
You've gotta take the stand, to tell the story
Of how your guilty stains have been replaced
Oh, everything you've done has been erased
By the evidence of love
So, you don't have the right
No, you don't have the right
Have you ever felt yourself apprehended
Caught in your complacency
The struggle to remain undercover
Hear the witness you were meant to be
When you know so many others around you
Need what you have to say
[chorus]
You don't have the right to remain silent
If you've been arrested by God's grace
You've gotta take the stand, to tell the story
Of how your guilty stains have been replaced
Oh, everything you've done has been erased
By the evidence of love
So, you don't have the right
No, you don't have the right
Can you make it your determination
The people wait to hear your plea
The word you speak could be vital
To somebody's eternity
When so much hangs on the part that you play
How could you not speak up
[chorus]
You don't have the right to remain silent
If you've been arrested by God's grace
You've gotta take the stand, to tell the story
Of how your guilty stains have been replaced
Oh, everything you've done has been erased
By the evidence of love
When you're called to tell what you know
(Walk the talk and talk the walk)
C'mon and let the redeemed of the Lord say so
Let 'em say so (say so, say so, say so)
[chorus]
You don't have the right to remain silent
If you've been arrested by God's grace
You've gotta take the stand, to tell the story
Of how your guilty stains have been replaced
Everything you've done has been erased
By the evidence of love
You don't have the right to remain silent
If you've been arrested by God's grace
You've gotta take the stand, to tell the story
Of how your guilty stains have been replaced
Everything you've done has been erased
By the evidence of love
So, you don't have the right
No, you don't have the right
[repeat til fade]
