And wondered if a god was there.
My heart was beating hard and strong;
Panic was its desperate song.
I felt as though the world would glare
At me for no one seemed to care.
My soul was forlorn, all downcast
And thought the gray would always last.
My heart was empty; I felt doomed.
Stress and death always loomed.
My mind was cloudy, never free.
What in the world was wrong with me?!
I needed a friend to comfort me –
A friend to share my destiny,
A friend who loved without restraints,
A friend for all my joys, complaints.
Then one sweet day my reverie broke
By some loving, godly folk.
They told me of Christ’s love and grace;
Their words my spirit did embrace.
Jesus Christ knocked at my heart.
He said his love would never part.
He said my sin He would forgive
And give fresh life in which to live.
Tears trickled down my sad face
As I received his love, his grace.
My burdens gone, my spirits high,
Eternal life; I will never die.
Someday I will ever be
With Christ our God, who set us free.
In heaven’s place filled with bliss
And evil gone, I’d never miss.
He’s coming back as King someday
When all will see his great array.
Evil conquered, goodness reigns
Along the woods, along the plains.
Until that time I will wait
To see heaven’s open gate.
I will work to that great time
And do his will most sublime.
Now birds all sing so heavenly
The sun shines bright each day for me.
The rainbow’s arc, a beautiful hue,
Stars glow so strong, life seems new.
Spring awakens and stirs my spirit.
Children play; I love to hear it.
And God’s majesty shows in fall;
I love its colors best of all.
I can’t believe this change in me
From hate, panic, anxiety.
I trust in Jesus every day
For He will always lead the way.
As my fears have gone away
I rejoice, and sing, and pray.
I laugh at all my new found zest
For life with Jesus is the best.
