I was guilty of all the charges
doomed and disgraced
but Jesus with His special love
saved me by His grace
He pleaded and He pleaded
He pleaded my case
Jesus dropped the charges
and now I’m saved through grace and faith

I was guilty for so long
lived in sin too long
but Jesus with His special love
reached out with His arms so strong
He picked me up, turned me around
gave me a brand new song
Jesus dropped the charges
now I’m free down in my soul

He dropped the charges, Jesus dropped the charges
although I was wrong
He dropped the charges, Jesus dropped the charges
showed me right from wrong
He dropped the charges, Jesus dropped the charges
and cast them all away
at Calvary I heard Him say
“Case dismissed, saved by grace”
