By His Grace

A life lived all for myself,
Nothing more than shame,
A life of one man spent,
Smearing Christ our Savior's name!
I always looked in doubt, upon that man made cross,
I always looked at you, as one who's always lost!
I didn't know what happened, but Jesus sent a friend…
As they all stood by, wondering would I die,
It was the cross upon her neck that really caught my eye!
As I looked intently on that cross, I began to say aloud…
"I been wrong about this Jesus," and I witnessed to the crowd!
"Jesus indeed, died for me, paying for my sin!"
"Yes I know He died alone hanging from that tree,
And He did it because the God He is, He died for you and me!"
I started getting weaker, and knew my time was short!
I only had one last breath, to end with this retort:
Falling in my Savior's arms,
His grace, His love, His might
Made this sinner pure!
