Danette Kettwich
3/5/11

Righteous in my own eyes
But lost none the same
I could live life on my own
No need to call His name.

Going through life trying
To fill it with a world of lies
The fuller my life became
The more blinded were my eyes.

Headed into a wide open pit
Of pain and soul destruction
Sin I found bittersweet
I fell into its seduction

In bitterness and pain
My life just hung on
Filled with an emptiness
My soul now withdrawn

So thirsty for the truth
So hungry for the light
Darkness is consuming
Discouraging my lifeís fight

Crying out in my emptiness
Jesus, my last chance
Reached in and found me
He loved me in advance.

Jesus was my last option;
My sin has been erased
Rest for a troubled heart
The thirst has been replaced

Strength for the weary
My hunger was satisfied
Healing for the broken
Defiled now beautified.

Itís hard to be thankful
For choices I have made
But they brought me here
Amazing Grace displayed!
