exchange

“Exchange” by Parousia

Every so often I complain
About how life’s been unfair to me
And how I deserve so much more
Than what I possess currently

It’s a sentiment that makes no sense
When I look at what I have at Your expense

It’s an unfair exchange
And I can’t fathom why
You’re so willing to accept my sorrow
In an unequal trade
For Your inexplicable joy
You give me riches for my poverty

Now I understand that I am blessed
I see that my demands are absurd
There’s ample reason to celebrate
Your grace, more than I deserve

It’s a sentiment that makes no sense
When I look at what I have at Your expense

It’s an unfair exchange
And I can’t fathom why
You’re so willing to accept my sorrow
In an unequal trade
For Your inexplicable joy
You give me riches for my poverty

You, the Creator of the universe
Have laid down Your everything for me
How could I ask for more?
How could I ask for more?

Woh-ho..Woh-ho…Woh-hoooh

This songs talks about how we demand so much, yet actually Jesus has already laid down his life for our lives, willing to accept our sorrow in an unfair and unequal exchange, giving us and blessing us richly. How can we ask for more?
