Paid In Full

It was shattered and broken – beyond repair and I wondered – what should I do now?
It was hard to believe any worth remained – but it had to be paid for somehow
I shuddered to look very closely at the terrible mess I had made
But the note on the bill so clearly declared - “This debt has been fully paid”

“Paid in full!” - but I didn't deserve so much mercy
I was clearly to blame for the unsightly scene there before me
And my deepest regret couldn't pay for the debt that I owed to the Potter that day
But because of the depth of His unfailing love - there was nothing that I had to pay


Now I tried to relieve the burden of guilt by hiding the pieces away
Still hoping to find some future solution to the problem created that day
It didn't take too long to notice that even the darkest of night
Provided no cover for all of my past whenever I came near the Light


Today I passed by the place where it happened and paused to remember the scene
There wasn't a trace of my tragic mistake – the place was swept totally clean
And the Potter had no recollection when He heard the regret of my past
But when I recalled the note on the bill I truly believed it at last

“Paid in full!” - though I'll never deserve so much mercy
When I'm clearly to blame for the unsightly scene there before me
But my deepest regret never pays for the debt that I owe to the Potter each day
And its only because of His unfailing love - there is nothing that I have to pay
Lord - its only because of Your unfailing love - there is nothing that I have to pay
