Life once was so dark – Fears and worries would not cease.
I tried applying earthly remedies, but nothing brought me peace.
I was often discontent, simply trying to fit in.
But no amount of effort steered me from this world of sin.
Oh to be accepted! Oh to be loved!
If only I had looked up – and focused on the One above.
This Jesus came to save me from the toil, the strain and strife.
I didn’t understand at first, that I could have new life.
He went through agony for me, on a cruel and barren cross.
To make me new, to set me free, to remove the sinful dross.
He died, He rose victorious –
No longer in the grave!
He lives to intercede for me; I now feel strong and brave.
He doesn’t just improve our life, we’re now completely new!
So we not go out triumphantly, as He would have us do.
