TITLE: Life Un-wasted

This is a song that's based on my own life. My goal for this song is that it would bring encouragement to those who are just coming to the Lord. I hope that it will be a testimony of God's ability to bring people out of the darkness and hopelessness of an ungodly lifestyle regardless of what they have done or been through.
For so long I stumbled through this life
and nothing ever seemed right.
For so long I was lost in the darkness
not knowing the beauty of the light.
I stumbled around as if my soul was wasted.
I vividly remember the day
I could no longer take it.
On my knees I fell to the cold ground.
I felt so alone.
I didnít think anyone was around.
Then I felt Your warm hand upon my shoulder
and I looked up to see
You standing right there beside me.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time
I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness
came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life
living un-wasted for You.

I used to stumble around
like I was walking on shaky ground.
My soul was lost in a wasted state
and my life felt like a big mistake.
I spent my time looking through clouded eyes
wondering why I was here.
Now Iím seeing my life through Your eyes
and for the first time,
everything seems so clear.
Iíve locked the door to my old life of darkness and sin
and Iím throwing away the key
Ďcause Iím never opening that door,
NO, I will never live my life wasted again!
Lord, I still remember the day
I let You come in.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time
I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness
came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life
living un-wasted for You.

I will never let myself be wasted again.
Now Iím running in the good race
and Iím in it to win!
I wonít go backwards,
Iím pressing ahead towards my goal
and I will never again be a wasted soul.
Youíve created such an amazing change
inside of me.
Youíve moved on into my heart
and Youíve become my King.
My God, I owe to You everything!
I still remember when
I let You come in.

And Your love came raining down.
You came pouring in without a sound.
I suddenly found myself drenched in a love so new
and for the first time
I surrendered everything to You.

A sweeter love my heart had never tasted
and along with Your forgiveness
came the opportunity to live life un-wasted.
Now Iím living this life un-wasted and true.
Iíll spend the rest of my life
living un-wasted for You.
