The February song has a name now which is “It Was Paid”.  The idea of writing and mixing a song each month came from Graham Cochrane at Recording Revolution.  The inspiration for this song came in part from some notes I wrote down some years back in an old notebook. The song ended up with the words below.

It Was Paid

Written by William Mitchell – Feb. 10, 2017

What would be, the cost for salvation

What would be, the cost to free my soul

Open your heart and mind to what I say

Salvation price has already been paid

It was paid by the perfect one

Paid by his love and suffering for us

God did not appoint us to suffer and die

Salvation’s price was paid by the son of God

Come and find, the son of man

Come and find, the plan he has for you

For God did not create you to live in pain

Salvation price has already been paid

It was paid by the perfect one

Paid by his love and suffering for us

God did not appoint us to suffer and die

Salvation’s price was paid by the son of God

The gifts of man, only last for a while

The gifts of man, will lead you astray

The price for sin you can never pay

Yet your bill clear, it has already been paid

It was paid by the perfect one

Paid by his love and suffering for us

God did not appoint us to suffer and die

Salvation’s price was paid by the son of God

So open your heart to the perfect one

The one who loved and suffered for us

God appointed him to suffer and die

Salvation’s price was paid by Jesus Christ

It was paid by the perfect one

Paid by his love and suffering for us

God did not appoint us to suffer and die

Salvation’s price was paid by the son of God
