I lived a life of darkness; I lived in halls of
My heart was made of solid rock; I felt not
pain or love.
I drank I fought I wandered free, no one could
For pleasure used I many a girl yet loved I not
I drank, I laughed, I fought and wooed, I bent
the knee to none,
A wild and wayward soul I was until I saw
Her every way was soft and nice, her eyes so
deep and dark,
So dark and bright an Even' Star her lips so
deep and red.
She came with heart so filled with love she saw
so deep inside,
Yet I a soul so dark and stained what hope had
I for her.
With sin and blood upon my soul how could I
So to despair I then did fall, it clouded all
Then came a spark of loves pure light to
cleanse my weary heart,
In front me sweet Yvette stood a smile within
'I see a light within thy eye' she said in
words so kind,
'Come join with me and change your way' and so
I walked with her.
That day I left behind the past, the man I knew
A man so distant now it seems but just a dream
A distant vision long now passed my life did
change that day,
That blessed day so fair and bright love came
down to me.
She drew me from the pit to light;
She cleansed my heart with love,
And so I am another man I walk with sweet
Along the shores of life we tread our hearts
are bound in love.
