Crowder - Red Letters Lyrics




There I was on death row
Guilty in the first degree
Son of God hanging on a hill
Hell was my destiny

The crowd was shouting crucify
Could've come from these lips of mine
The dirty shame was killing me
It would take a miracle to wash me clean

Then I read the red letters
And the ground began to shake
The prison walls started falling
And I became a free man that day

Felt like lightning hit my veins
My dead heart began to beat
Breath of God filled my lungs
And the Holy Ghost awakened me
Yeah, the Holy Ghost awakened me

When I read the red letters
And the ground began to shake
The prison walls started falling
And I became a free man that day

For God so loved the whole wide world
Sent his only Son to die for me
Arms spread wide for the whole wide world
His arms spread wide where mine should be
Jesus changed my destiny

Thank You, God, for red letters
When the ground began to shake
The grace of God started falling
And I became a free man that day
The prison walls started falling
And I am a free man… today

  35. Dee Jones

    Jesus, God in flesh, became fully man...in order to,”own,” the debt we all own...legally. He paid our debt because He could legally do it, but being God, death has no hold on Him. So debt being paid for all man by His death, being God, He rose...death having no hold on Him. Our job... believe this, receive this...trust that His work for us is finished.

  50. TheCoffeeCrafter

    [Verse 1]
    There's no reason, there's no rhyme
    I found myself blindsided by
    A feeling that I've never known
    I'm dealing with it on my own


    Phone is quiet, walls are bare
    I drink myself to sleep, who cares
    No one even has to know
    I'm dealing with it on my own


    [Chorus]
    I've got way too much time to be this hurt
    Somebody, help, it's getting worse
    What do you do with a broken heart?
    Once the light fades, everything is dark


    Way too much whiskey in my blood
    I feel my body giving up
    Can I hold on for another night?
    What do I do with all this time?


    [Verse 2]
    Every thought's when it gets late
    Put me in a fragile state
    I wish I wasn't going home
    Dealing with it on my own


    I'm praying but it's not enough
    I'm done, I don't believe in love
    Learning how to let it go
    Dealing with it on my own


    [Chorus]
    I've got way too much time to be this hurt
    Somebody, help, it's getting worse
    What do you do with a broken heart?
    Once the light fades, everything is dark


    Way too much whiskey in my blood
    I feel my body giving up
    Can I hold on for another night?
    What do I do with all this time, yeah?


    [Bridge]
    I drive circles
    Under street lights
    Nothing seems to clear my mind
    I can't forget if it's inside my head so
    I drive chasing
    Malibu nights
    Nothing seems to heal my mind
    I can't forget
    [Chorus]
    I've got way too much time to be this hurt
    Somebody, help, it's getting worse
    What do you do with a broken heart?
    Once the light fades, everything is dark


    Way too much whiskey in my blood
    I feel my body giving up
    Can I hold on for another night?
    What do I do with all this time, yeah?


    [Bridge]
    I drive circles
    Under street lights
    Nothing seems to clear my mind
    I can't forget if it's inside my head so


    I drive chasing
    Malibu nights
    Nothing seems to heal my mind
    I can't forget


    I drive chasing
    Malibu nights

    My loving husband to be ..... Listen closely and give it all to our saviour and you will be free of all that binds you .!! I love you but that is nothing compared to how God and Christ loves us both , I think .... Maybe we are coming upon a new and joyous path in this journey called human life . Considering all the evil and sick things we have witnessed from this world . Could it be that it is the path that breaks the chains and opens the locked doors that so many didn't ever want you to find or me . Take my hand my love let our saviour guide us United to our destiny

  53. Minis Tirith

    My brother passed away on September 24th 2019. This was his favorite song and was played at his funeral. Miss him so much a part of me left with him. But on that day my brothers chains were broken and he was a free man😭

    ROBERT DOROTHY BOLEY

    Yes amen! He went home !

    Greg Guillory

    I also lost a brother and my dad in the same year I know how you feel some days it's very hard and then again we're still here but they are up there and if you look at it this way that's more of they're praying for us the God be with you always stay strong my friend because it gets better and Jesus is coming soon amen

    Minis Tirith

    @Greg Guillory amen to that! Sorry to hear your loss too my friend. It's absolutely the worst thing ever and the only thing that keeps me going is knowing I will see him again!!

    Minis Tirith

    @ROBERT DOROTHY BOLEY amen he is at peace.

    Minis Tirith

    @SilverStackinHomesteadPreppin thanks friend I am trying. Just one day at a time.

  54. Michael Gross

    All whom live in USA are blessed weather you realize it or not, there are still so many caring people here with the love of Christ inside of them and a new loving generation who want more truth and honesty and accountability and morals back in the World as it always should have been, Satan has been trying hard to fool many and or kill many and his time is getting shorter as Jesus will come back to Earth one day when God says he has had enough with mans games, lies and taking advantage and not caring for others., God is indeed real, very alive and he keeps me alive, well to continue to witness to anyone who doesnt know God will judge us all when our life is over on Earth. To anyone trying to kick a bad habit, keep moving forward, and if need be, stay away from those still doing those bad habits. Bad Company corrupts good character. May God bless you always and forever and wait for Gods blessings in heaven!!! Not all prayers are answered while we live here....

  55. fany perez

    Yesterday morning I woke heard a voice to stop what I was doing. I hadn't say my morning prayer, than I stopped listen to this song and I felt the holy spirit's touch and started crying got on my knee. It was such a beautiful experience.

  56. livi Farris

    Pz pray for me and my family my grandpa died 2 weeks ago and from that day we lay there crying

    I'm a dad. I try to be the best I can at it. I recently lost my dad. When I was a child he stressed to me no matter what happens in this world, friends will come and go, relationships may fall apart for no reason at all. When you think your all alone.... you can't depend on no one in this life other than Jesus.. .. The Risen living son of the Almighty God. .. There is no one that loves you more than Jesus. Thank you Father

    Josh Brown

    Mr Crowder your music makes my soul smile. Thank you so much for your beautiful music. All my hope is indeed in Jesus. My favorite song of all time. ...

    God, thank you for the red letters. Thank you for reaching to us personally, thank you for loving me.

  86. Nancy Jacobs

    This song makes me cry every time I hear it!! Just love it!!!!

  87. Rick McPherson

    This song combines the world battle and the spiritual victory all in one beautiful melody. I'm sure it is as well for many but this song is my entire testimony. I am 57 and have been sober a good while but when I read those "red letters" I was behind prison walls. I had DUI's and beers to numerous to even be alive....but oh thanks be to our Jesus..He forgave me and talked to me in "red letters". Jesus restored my reputation..I now go in and speak to those behind the prison walls and share the "red letters" with them. Jesus restored my finances..so much did He that I can help many others with all kinds of repair work that they otherwise could not afford...Jesus didn't restore my heart...I never had one to restore...so He gave me a brand new one. I can love...give...believe..hope..pray...and do all of those again and again. Mr. Crowder...if you read this...let me get up on stage with you and belt this song out....Jesus blessed me with that too.

  88. Jerry Jr Valenzuela

    Just heard this and my first reaction was: "wait, the intro is the same as the intro of LANY's Malibu Nights!"

    Anyway, this song gave me chills. 😭

  89. Raul Chavez

    Yeah the holy ghost awaken me ..and ground started to to shake...thank u God and Jesus Christ my Lord and savior and the Holy Spirit Amen...

  92. Airick Hernandez

    Asking for prayers for me complete healing to my body mind soul and spirit
    So many health issues I have been facing

  93. Patti Gurne

    All these songs keep me even closer to Father God.

  94. David Aldridge

    Red letters have a specific purpose and I am hoping the clarity and truth overcome the confusion sooner than later. Crowder knows what red letters mean and he has seen the light. Some have some have not. I was told what the red letters are for when I was a teen. It was unacceptable to try to conceive then. If its true prepare to be surprised.
