I WAS LOST IN A WORLD FULL OF CONFUSION.
MY IDLE MIND WAS THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND.
I HAD A HEART THAT WAS SO DARK
AND A SOUL SO VERY COLD.

YOU SEE...HATE WAS MY ART!
I DIDN'T RESPECT OTHERS,
I ONLY CARED FOR MYSELF.

SURE! I HAD FRIENDS, BUT NONE THAT I COULD RELY ON.
YOU SEE! WE ALL WERE BIRDS OF THE SAME FLOCK;
CAUSING HATE AND DISCONTENT WAS A DAILY EVENT.

UNTIL ONE DAY MY LIFE STARTED FALLING APART,
THAT'S WHEN EVERYTHING BECAME SO DARK.
LIFE'S CONFLICTS WERE CAUSING ME SO MUCH PAIN,
IT STARTED DRIVING ME INSANE.

THERE I WAS BROKEN DOWN TO MY KNEES,
SO FULL OF DESPAIR - FEELING AS IF NO ONE CARED.

THEN I TRIED SOMETHING THAT MY MOTHER ALWAYS
SUGGESTED.
I CALLED UPON THE NAME OF JESUS, AND THAT'S WHEN
MY LIFE BEGAN TO CHANGE.

NOW I SING A SONG OF A NEW BORN!
PRAISING GOD FOR SAVING MY SOUL AND KEEPING ME CLOSE!
HE IS THE ONE WHO HAS GIVEN ME PEACE WITHIN AND A BIRTH OF NEW HOPE!

THIS MAY NOT BE YOUR STORY,
BUT THE POINT I'M TRYING TO MAKE;
THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO.

The Road Home.

Amen.
