( I went to church on Sundays) .
I thought being good was good enough.
But when times were dark and life was tough .
I felt I couldn't endure . ( all that stuff )
Then one day I was warming a pew .
Heard the Preacher say " There aren't but few
that practice what they say
And if you think you'll get to Heaven just talking the talk ,
you better get on your knees and pray "
As they sang benediction I did not falter ,
I ran to the alter
and cried to the Lord .
I cried " Jesus come save me "
and the gift that he gave me ,
the gift of Salvation set a light in my soul.
And my heart that was heavy , the burden was lifted .
I was eternally gifted
with forgiveness and love .
Now when life is dark and I once would flee .
I hold my light up to shine
so that others may see .
I try to live Faith, Hope and Love
and let the good Lord above
use me to show his enduring charity .
