A Chance to Change

When the heavens open up and Christ's face shines through
And He reaches down His hands, not for me, but for you
Still He looks at me softly and tears fill His eyes
Then I fall to my knees and start to cry
Why did I not answer when He called my name
I was much too busy chasing fortune and fame
I thought there was plenty of time, before that last trumpet sounds
Now I am deafened as my pleading heart pounds
Dear God, I cried out, don't leave me here
I'm scared, I need you, I'm so full of fear
The skies they thundered and the heavens lit up
Then God gently shook me, from my sleep I woke up
Shaken and trembling in my bed I lay
God's giving me a chance to change my way
My life is complete now with Christ by my side
No longer controlled by Satan and pride
Thank you dear Jesus for dying for me
For saving my soul and setting me free
Don't let this dream for you come true
Christ died for us all, that's me and you
When Christ comes again I'll be ready to go
Follow Him my friend, He loves you so
