I thank Christ Jesus our Lord,
To whom I have loved and adored;
He appointed to do His task,
Trusting not to question or ask.
He has given me wisdom and strength,
To persevere at any length;
Even in the past I did curse,
Persecuted and had done worse.
I have been in the past so rude,
With an arrogant attitude;
He gave me His mercy and grace,
Under His wing He did embrace.
I behaved with my unbelief,
As I acted more like a thief;
But our Lord was very kind,
His kindness was easing my mind.
He brought me faith and gave me love,
That was flowing down from above;
Which did deserve complete credence,
Without possible impedance.
Christ Jesus came onto this earth,
For saving sinners for their true worth;
And I am the foremost sinner,
Whose life had changed as a winner.
He treated me with clemency,
So that other people could see;
Able to demonstrate patience,
Having a spiritual conscience.
Worship and glory forever,
A kinship that will not sever;
The eternal immortal king,
Praising in the songs that we sing.
Some refuse to their let faith guide,
They are unable to abide;
Their faith destroyed like a shipwreck,
Being beheaded at the neck.
