Gone are the sorrows of unending pain,
No place in me now for terror or tears,
My Shepherd chased the source of my fears.
Blessings abundantly shower my space,
With shining shimmers delivering His grace,
Saved from drowning in yesterday’s sin,
Peace from above flows like rivers within.
Blessings glow softly in amazing ways,
Lighting the path for tomorrow’s days,
Warmth spreads inside a lone empty heart,
Mending a soul this world shattered apart.
Blessings anew come with every breath,
As mercy and faith bring beautiful rest,
From a life longing for itself to be known,
No longer reaping the seeds that were sown.
Blessings so tender now fill up the soul,
Gently healing heartaches of old,
Now I can feel the presence of Him,
A smile in a spirit once darkened and grim.
Blessings of my Lord whispering to come,
Just as the last sheep to find his way home,
Lost, imprisoned, and at last found free,
For a good Shepherd gave His life for me.
