To joy and satisfaction in your life
Without Jesus, human nature drives us
We live a life of hopelessness and strife.
Jesus calls each and every one of us,
To give our sinful lives into His care.
Confess all our human failures to Him.
Take them to His cross, and leave them there.
Of course, He loves us, and desires our love.
All He asks of us is to follow.
Under the shelter of His loving wings;
Forgiven, no need in our sin to wallow.
We’re saved to serve, our sacrifice is paid,
Though the way seems so narrow and so steep;
He carries us so carefully in His arms;
And every promise He’s made, He will keep.
Oh yes, there will be sad disappointments;
Normal life trials seem to shove us about;
But His love will lead to much higher ground,
Never allow Satan tempt you to be a dropout.
Just read God’s Word, and His precious promises.
He’ll give you the strength to carry you through.
He’ll lift your heart, and He will lift your soul,
As no other close friend could ever do.
And when this life on earth has ended,
You’ll be transported up heavenly stairs.
You’ll greet the One with the nail pierced hands;
What a joy when we meet loved ones there.
