Embracing Accusation is a song by Shane & Shane from their “Pages” album. This song is so amazing, and can easily bring tears. At first listen it seems to have discouraging or depressing lyrics; that is, until you get to the end of the song! Then the glory of Christ shows through with such power and emotion in final verse.

Isn’t this how God works in our lives sometimes? We go through such difficult times in life, where God either tests us or allows Satan to have his way for a short season. But when that time comes, (God’s perfect timing) He rescues us and pulls us out of the depths of our trials, and is most glorified through that. When God is glorified in our lives, we are blessed, sometime beyond all comprehension! Let’s rejoice and be glad that God works in His time, and not ours, even though it may be hard to see in the time we feel the need for rescue.

“Embracing Accusation”
Artist: Shane & Shane
Album: Pages

The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed
That I am cursed and gone astray
I cannot gain salvation, embracing accusation

Could the father of lies be telling the truth
Of God to me tonight?
If the penalty of sin is death, then death is mine

I hear him saying, “Cursed are the ones who can’t abide”
He’s right, Hallelujah, he’s right

The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed
That I am cursed and gone astray
I cannot gain salvation

Oh, the devil’s singing over me an age old song
That I am cursed and gone astray
Singing the first verse so conveniently over me
He’s forgotten the refrain, Jesus saves
