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.
