Though I knew there was a God, way up above.
Never had my heart come close enough to find,
A love for that which was glory divine.
I didn’t care to know he could deliver me,
I sincerely thought I was already living free.
I didn’t know my sin would really bring me down,
That my Godless life was making him frown.
I wasn’t ever thankful, that much is true,
But to tell you the truth, I never really knew.
V.B.S. was fun, but I didn’t take it to heart,
I thought it was about games, singing, and art.
Somehow, the message never really sank in,
How could I have known that God hated my sin?
Church wasn’t a regular thing through my childhood years,
It was just making it through, with laughter and tears.
All this time I have wasted living down here,
Never understanding the God, the Bible said I should fear.
I didn’t know that God in heaven could truly love me,
That was one of the things that I really couldn’t see.
But God has opened my eyes and changed my heart,
And now I’ve come to realize, I really wasn’t very smart.
God can do so much more than I ever thought he could.
That’s one of the many things I never understood.
Now I see that God’s love for me is truly, truly great!
Fortunately for me, it wasn’t too late!
