Felix Culpa -Oh happy fault

This week I found the lyrics to a song that captures well the wrestling match of sin and Christ’s grace. As we sometimes run and often stumble through this journey of life, how I, how we all need God’s great grace. Our fall, tragic, yet oh Felix Culpa, oh happy fault that brings me to the grace of Christ. I am nothing without Jesus.

Felix Culpa:
Turn the lights on, look at what I have
See the twisted trophies of a dead man
Countless stories, tell of sin and pain
But they sing the sweetness of my savior’s grace

I’m a torn man, spirit fighting flesh
There’s a battle raging deep in my chest
But all that haunts me, all that leaves a stain
Only sings the sweetness of my savior’s grace

A fortunate fall, my sins are stories of grace to recall
A fortunate fall, I glory in my sins forgiven

Jesus bought me, and now I am His
Dying with Him, in His death I now live
All my vices, to which I was chained
Only speak the sweetness of my savior’s grace

And still I’m a wicked, wretched man, I do everything I hate
I am fighting to be god, I seethe and claw and thrash and shake
I have killed and stacked the dead, on a throne from which I reign
In the end I just want blood, and with His blood my hands are stained
See the God who reigns on high, He has opened His own veins
From His wounds a rushing torrent that can wash it all away
Grace upon grace, upon grace upon grace

[Lyrics to Felix Culpa by Kings Kaleidoscope]
