He forgave me when
I believed I was

When by worldly sin
I was too crippled
To stand

He forgave me when I
Would not listen to
His voice

When from His presence
In the material world
I ran…

Yet my Lord, would never
Stop calling out to my

He never stopped calling
Me by my spirits given

He saw the many tears
Which daily poured
From my eyes

At the moment when I
Genuinely began to

That the Lord never
Turned away from me
A single moment

Humbly turning to Him
I received the blessing
Of the great I AM…

He freed my disheartened
Soul which had once fallen
Far away

With his caring love in
My life allowing me to

Making me clean as He
Washed away remnants
Of my disgrace

Embracing me with his
Renewing power filled
With his grace

I know now as I walk
Along with my awesome

In His heaven, I will
Always have an endless
