When we realise what we’ve been saved from

There should be a humble heart that lasts,

Knowing that the grace of God

Has delivered us from our past.

As unregenerated we go astray

And have no respect for the Lord;

Too consumed with self-centred ways

And have no piety for His word.

But when His hand lifts us up

From the miry clay,

There’s a refreshing new beginning

Where righteousness should remain.

Similarly, when we visit the doctor

And we’re advised of our sick disposition,

There’s healing in our wings

When there’s a prescription for our condition.

God exposes the nature of our soul

But provides an antidote,

The remedy to reconcile us to Him

Whereby healing He promotes.

To renew our heart and mind

And in the spirit to be reborn,

And reconciled back to Him

With all the blessings He adorns.

Because we’re all unregenerate

But there’s positivity indeed,

That Jesus died for our sins

So for our soul He would intercede.

There are times of ignorance

Where for God we do not seek,

But it’s His mercy that extends to us

So we’re humbled and made meek.

There’s good news for us all

Since Christ’s blood at Calvary,

Cleanses us from all unrighteousness

So eternal life we see.

And when we trust in Him

And repent from the heart,

Our old nature is crucified

As we welcome a new start.
