A new song to me

I enjoyed a new song that I heard recently--

“Not Guilty Anymore” These are some of the lyrics--
“It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, doesn’t matter what you’re coming from,  it doesn’t matter where you’ve been.  Hear me tell you, I forgive.
You’re not guilty anymore.  You’re not filthy anymore.  I love you, mercy is yours.  You’re not broken anymore, you’re not captive anymore.  I love you, mercy is yours.
Can you believe that this is true.  Grace abundant I am giving you.  It’s cleansing deeper than you know.  All was paid for long ago.
You’re not guilty anymore....."
Beautiful Song. My sister said they often sang it at  her church. But said it never has more meaning than when she goes with a group to feed the homeless at a shelter. She said as they sang, the men would stand there weeping. 
But I need to always remember, my sins are just as hurtful to God. --"We tend to minimize our sin. When we hurt those we love we become aware of our sin. But because we do not see God and see how sin hurts Him we imagine our sin has no effect on him. If we weren't so bad without Christ then why did he have to endure the cross." (from Randy Alcorn's writings) 
Gal. 2:21 "...if righteous could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing."
