We are slaves to sin. Jesus has paid our ransom.
Two stories are woven together throughout this music video. One story (in black & white) is of a Christian facing temptations. The second story (in color) is of Jesus' crucifixion and ressurection from the dead to give us all the hope of a new life now and in eternity.
The incredible (color) footage used in this video is from the following movies:
"Matthew: A Dramatic Presentation of the Life of Jesus" - www.ThomasNelson.com
"The Book of John" - www.visualbible.com
"The Jesus Film" - www.jesusfilm.org
This version of Ransom is performed by the band, Sibling Harmony (Kim, Kurtis, and Kevin Bueltmann). The main character in the black and white scenes was played by Aaron Bueltmann.

1. Well, there's never been a walk so lonesome,
Cm Bb G# - G Cm
As the walk of a sinning man, well you can fake a smile,
But for all the while, there ain't no one who will understand,
Cm Bb G# - G Cm Bb G# - G
That for every laugh you've laughed, There was a dozen times you've cried,
And the prison you're in, Is made of bricks of sin, and you never even know you're inside.
Who will pay the ransom, who will pay the price?
Who's gonna pay for my freedom, O Lord. Who's gonna pay for my life?
I was a poor sinner living in bondage. You know it hurt so bad I cried,

But then the Lord paid the ransom with the blood of Jesus Christ.
2. Well, I know about the way of salvation, and I thank My Lord I'm saved,
I try to thank Him every night when I fall asleep, I try to thank Him at the break of day,
A million dollars couldn't buy me salvation, I couldn't buy it with the prayers I've prayed,
But the Lord bought it for me with the blood of His son,
And now He's taken all my sins away.
3. Well, He was scourged with metal staffs, Until His back was black with blood,
I saw the streaks of red, flow from the cuts on His head,
As they crowned Him with a crown of thorns, Then they hung Him naked on a cross,
They drove nails in His hands and feet, I saw the tears in His eyes as they pierced His side,
And left Him on the wood to bleed.
Ending: Well, they killed my Lord that Friday, But I tell you what I know is true,
Jesus gave His life as a ransom for me and you. He has paid the ransom.
