You Called Me Out


My actions and behavior were depraved
But you demanded holiness from sin’s slave
From wicked delusions and damnable doubt

I was faced with my sin when you called me out

Out of the darkness, out of the night
Out of the prison and into the light
Out of the grave, from the graveclothes unbound
You remove death’s wrappings and give us a crown.

Dead in my sin and sealed in hell’s grave
You called me out, you are mighty to save.
Deep in the silence, your death-piercing shout
Raised me from the dead when you called me out.

You’ll never wink at a sin and strife
You have saved us and called us to a holy life
Slaves called to faith in the Lord  now set free
To walk in the light and the light now to be

Out of the darkness, out of the night
Out of the prison and into the light
Out of the grave, from the graveclothes unbound
You remove death’s wrappings and give us a crown.

Dead in my sin and sealed in hell’s grave
You called me out, you are mighty to save.
Deep in the silence, your death-piercing shout
Raised me from the dead when you called me out.
