Deep Magic

White Witch:
I know what's due me and I seek only justice--
You can't refuse me what is mine without question--
The law is perfect and its claims are unchanging--
Who could dare to defy?
The deep magic...from the dawn of time.

I claim the boy as my legitimate victim--
I have the right to take the life of a traitor,
And that this human is the vilest of traitors
Who would dare to defy?
The deep magic...that punishes for every crime.

You must yield to me this little liar's blood
Or Narnia itself will perish in an apocalypse of fire and blood.

Deep Magic, Deep Magic,
Holds punishment for every crime,
Deep Magic, Deep Magic,
Deep Magic from the dawn of time.

Susan: Aslan? were killed by the Deep Magic of the Witch!

Edmund: Instead of me...

Lucy: We saw them... We saw you...

Aslan: Yes.

But there is a Deeper Magic that the Witch does not know. And by this Magic, when someone blameless take the place of one who is guilty, then death moves in reverse and brings the blameless victim back through the door of life.

...White Witch: Aslan! But I killed you myself under the Deep Magic!

Aslan: There is a Deeper Magic that goes beyond the cold justice of the letter of the law.

The Law was written in letters on stone. Even though it was a way of serving God, it led to death. But even that way of serving God came with glory. And even though the glory was fading, the people of Israel couldn't look at Moses' face very long.

Since all of that is true, won't the work of the Holy Spirit be even more glorious? The Law that sentences people to death is glorious. How much more glorious is the work of the Spirit! His work makes people right with God.

2 Cor. 3:7-9 NIRV
