I run shadow to shadow. Heart full of dread and shame. They screamed, ďyou followed Jesus.Ē
But I renounced His name.
Miserable and wretched. So weak and full of fear. As pitiless as trash.
My agonyís severe.
I knew He was the Christ. As God revealed to me. In His own hour of need.
I fled to free just me.
What kind of man am I? I swore Iíd be His friend. That I would never leave.
His life I would defend.
My Jesus, Lord, and King. The cock is crowing now. I denied you thrice tonight.
And yet You knew somehow.
Your face, so full of sorrow. Could You just look my way? Can You forgive my sin?
A brother gone astray?
Our eyes meet. Time seems to freeze. What is it that I see? Your eyes so full of love.
Is it still meant for me?
It penetrates, convicts me. I know that I have sinned. No way could you still love me.
I denied you to all men.
Your mercies underserved. And your redeeming grace. For all I see is love.
Itís written on Your face.
The truth becoming clear. I see what Your life means. Intent to save our souls.
A dream thatís been foreseen.
Someday beyond the veil. Foríere when life begins. This Peter will I seek.
Whoís cleansed from all his sin.
I too have run in shadows. So full of dread and shame. Accused of loving Jesus.
I denied I knew His name.
But when I heard of Peter. Who found his hope in Glory. His fall from grace was only.
The start of Peterís story.
When I cry out like Peter. To God of love and grace. Heís there to lift my heart.
And meet me face to face.
Iíve learned much from Peter. Is sin worth all that pain? God used it for redemption.
His pain became Godís gain.
