I remember once hearing the truth
Yet my heart so proud it resisted;
Continued with life, was so busy
My name in “The Book” was not listed.
Not listed to enter heaven
To spend it with God everafter;
Was blinded, so wretched and lost
Continued with life and its laughter.
The world and all its temptations
In sin I lived and enjoyed;
My feet were walking to hell
And my soul with fire it toyed.
But the light it shone in my heart
And exposed all humanity’s sin;
My mind so shocked to discover
My soul was so empty within.
So glad that I finally discovered
That Jesus had paid for my life;
The blood which was shed on the cross
All my darkness was cut with a knife.
No longer I long for man’s wisdom
Or acceptance and philosophical ways;
I look to the truth of eternity
To secure my heavenly days.
