He is the name above all names,

Bearing the burden of my pain,

There on the cross He took the blame

For all my sin


He took my place upon the cross,

He gave me hope when all was lost,

Our God Incarnate paid the cost

For all my sin.



Oh, Lord, You gave Your life for me,

Blessed be Your Name,

My debt is paid, I've been set free,

Blessed be Your Name.


He bled and died on Calvary,

He shed His blood upon the tree,

He said to Thomas, "Come and see",

He bore my sin



He will forever be the same,

Oh, sinner, call upon His Name,

He brought salvation when He came,

He bore my sin


Blessed be Your Name.

Blessed be Your Name.

“Don't let anyone fool you – nothing in life is free – someone, somewhere pays the cost. God's free gift to us is no different. What cost are you speaking of, you ask?  The cost of our sin: God cannot allow our sin – your sin – into his presence, not even just a single, seemingly minor sin. He is holy, perfect, and just.  Deep down, we all know this – our conscience tells us this. That is why we constantly try to justify our actions, to do our own good works to try to make up for them.  The first half of Rom 6:23 states “For the wages of sin is death ...” You see, when man works, he receives a wage for his efforts.   However, none of man's efforts can please God. Isa 64:6 teaches us that “... we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” In fact, these wages are actually a penalty – a debt, a judgment against us.  However, note that there is Good News – the second half of Rom 6:23 tells us “but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Christ paid our eternal judgment of death. He bore our sin; He paid the cost.  When we realize we are no longer on “death row”, we can all joyfully exclaim “My debt is paid, I've been set free.  Blessed be Your Name!!!””
