"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

"And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." Isaiah 51:11

"The emphasis of the ransom image is on our sorry state- indeed our captivity in sin – which made the act of divine rescue necessary." – CJ Mahaney


Once a slave to sin, chained in darkness without hope
A prisoner condemned to die in misery, alone
Captive to my pride, weak and helpless to break free
What love is this that dies to rescue me

The Son has come to ransom a people for His glory
Purchasing our lives
Leap for joy all you broken,
Your rebel deeds atoned for, nailed to the tree

Majesty and worth, beauty far beyond compare
I mocked Him to His face,
and rejected all His claims on me
A debtor to the One, who created every star
At the cross my Savior paid it all

It is finished, it is finished, my hero took my place
It is finished, it is finished, grace has won the day
