Not All for Nothing

Galatians 3:1-14.

Not All for Nothing

All for nothing, all for nothing
All this toil and strife and pain
All for nothing, all for nothing
Go to hell and back again

All for nothing

All for nothing

Sweat and blood, sweat and blood
Just to gain my own salvation
Broken bones, broken soul
In the name of desperation

All for nothing

All for nothing

Scars and bruises, scars and bruises
See my sorry penance here?
Accursed, accursed belief
No more of those evil tears

All for nothing

All for nothing

No less condemned, no less condemned
Then when I first began
No more saved, no more saved
 Will I yet be damned?

All for nothing!

All for nothing!

Was this all...was this all for nothing?
Was this all a footprint in the sand?
Erased by tides of nothingness
And leaving behind a soul that's damned?

All for nothing? Tell me it wasn't

All for nothing!

No, not all for nothing - that was not why You died!
Never let it drown out why You were crucified!
Never all for nothing! Never all for nothing! Not anymore!
Not all for nothing - Your death makes me restored! 

Not all for nothing!

Not all for nothing!

Not all for nothing anymore!

Your death makes me restored!

Not all for nothing!

Not all for nothing!

The End
