From Suicide to Singing

By: Rick L. King

From suicide to singing
Yes, this is my story
Of how Jesus came to me
In all of His glory

I met Jesus
At age twenty-eight
When all hope was gone
And death was my fate

I was married
And had a beautiful wife
I had a house
And a desire for life

I had a job
And money to spend
Yet, I didn't have peace
Way down deep within

I tried through sex
My needs to fulfill
I tried through drugs
But was empty still

I tried to buy
Fulfillment within
But all that I accomplished
Was to go deeper into sin

The next thing I knew
My wife and I were apart
My job was gone
And I had a broken heart

All the dreams that I had
And all of my many plans
Seemed to just blow away
Like the drifting of the sand

My nerves were shot
I started to shake
I was throwing up blood
So nerve pills, did I take

I couldn't eat nor sleep
Because of the pain inside
So then to the booze
I tried to escape in, and hide

Nothing worked
All just failed
Little did I know
That I was headed for hell

There was nothing left
For me to do
So I decided to end it all
For there was no use

I had it all planned
Just how my suicide would be
But I was to find out
That someone had a plan for me

I found myself going
To a couple of friends
They had always loved me
And had never condemned

They told me of Jesus
And of His love for me
And how He died upon the Cross
At Calvary

They said that if I would ask Jesus
To forgive all my sin
And ask Him into my heart
That I would be Born Again

Then all the sudden
New peace filled my heart
For Jesus had saved me
And given to me a new start

I went out of their door
And looked all around
It was hard to comprehend
All that I found

The trees and the sky
Were a new beautiful sight
For the darkness was gone
I was seeing through the light

Yes, this was far beyond
All of my thinking
For Jesus had taken me
From Suicide to Singing.
