ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Born in darkness, blind to my condition
My flesh is formed to the likeness of sin.
But how could I know this awful state,
With nothing to compare my awful fate.
I’ve spent years in this blindness
Stumbling like a child in darkness.
Still unaware that Your light could shine
And bring clarity to this life of mine.
There I see it, a flicker, a flame to light my way.
Your Word, Your Truth brings life to my decay.
Like a mirror, Your Word reveals my true visage
I stand, eyes fixed upon that fractured image.
Taking in this illumination, I come to understand
Your Word is more than light, it is an outstretched hand.
To pluck me from impending death, to draw me closer still
To change my malformations, to guide me in Your will.
I can take hold of what He offers me, and die to this old life
Or choose to walk away, forgetting the truth I saw in His light.
