As I stood inside the courtroom The judge came walking in There was One who stood beside me A compassionate friend As he spoke my situation I knew that he was in control Of the destiny of my eternal soul
With a hush the crowd awaited To receive the words he'd say A finality was pressing Like no other day To reveal my destination That was what I soon would know To eternity, where was I to go?
(Chorus:) Yes, your honor, I'm at your mercy You can do with me Just as you please Please remember My testimony The blood of Jesus Covers me
When the time came for the verdict The anticipation rose But the people knew too well The path in life they chose Those who had not cared to answer When in life he gave the call Or had known his grace and love Only to fall
But as he looked in my direction I was not afraid 'Cause the nailed-scarred hands Were there defending me But then he rose to give the answer As we bowed unto the Lord He said "Well done my child, Great is your reward"
Please remember My testimony The blood of Jesus Covers me
