Something way down deep inside
my lost and lonely soul -
had eaten me until I died
of all my self-control.
Someone special lent a hand
that I did not deserve -
and touched an inner fragile strand -
a close and tender nerve.
I knew not what to make of it -
that kind, unselfish act.
My knees got weak and I admit -
was thankful. That's a fact.
And then I sensed a flicker as
a flame on candle waves -
and saw their bumper sticker
that read, "Smile! Jesus Saves!"
Then something in my reddened eyes
had made it hard to see -
when choked, I was, and all my cries
came pouring out of me.
So stunned in awe, I stopped to think
of all I'm guilty of.
I know my sin - once set in ink -
was wiped away with love.
Now, reminiscing has a way
to judge my many years -
so hymns in church on Sunday's now -
can well my eyes with tears.
