The blood seeps out of my overwhelming wounds
Hope fills my soul that the pain will be over soon.
But I try to go on with a broken heart
Ignoring that it has been pierced by a dart.
A glimmer of light enters a dark cave
A voice of peace called me to be saved.
But I turned my head and refused the light
And I returned once again to the darkness of my night.
Though I turned, I was unaware
It was the thought of being alone that I could not bear.
I longed for love from only one
Yet in that moment my fighting had just begun.
A prince of peace appeared to me
The light of life I chose not to see.
Why, O why do I reach for a knife?
Why do I ignore the happiness of life?
Or am I mistaken and I shall live alone?
With a deep, dark wish that at me one will cast a stone?
A way out I want, but what is it I need?
Perhaps a path for Jesus to lead.
I cried and I pleaded my life's just too rough.
But Jesus said to me, "My love is good enough."
I tried and I tried but I could not comprehend
With God above, I will always have a friend.
But not me, not me, O how I cried
But Jesus came over me and made my fear subside.
He opened my eyes and made me no longer blind
In Him, in Him, what Love did I find!
Unending love, amazing grace!
My anguish relieved from upon my face.
In his love, I shall not budge
Not once at all till the day he comes to judge.
O, glorify Him in all that I do!
Praise God, Praise God, for His love tis true!
It's so much more than only me and you.
Through Jesus Christ, my life is new.
