Burned alive, my soul was,
despite my swings and thrashes -
and I had been completely dead,
a filthy heap of ashes.
And Heaven I forgot about
when living with the masses.
So futile there, my soul was -
I learned life quickly passes.
Excuses weren't accepted.
Results were very vile.
I had to stop and think a bit -
and cry for quite awhile.
But that was then and this is now.
I want you all to see -
that I had no one else to blame
except for 'little me'.
But sought I Jesus, by and by,
above the clouds and birds.
His grace was free. Now so am I
to leave these loving words:
If you would simply just repent -
and let His Spirit free -
through faith, you'll find a joyous life
and so contented be.
