I trust in you for life to live, and air to breath.
Purity fills my lungs.
I no longer live in solitude.
No longer bound.
My heart beats with great devotion.
This is the start to a new beginning.
On my knees praying for mercy.
Hands raised high, humble and broken. Wanting your grace.
Wanting your security.
Memories of laying facedown, motionless, with such a hollow feeling inside.
Soon I would end this life I was living.
I am just a man with a heart and sinful hands.
I am a fallen victim.
Lord, show me the way. I ask of you Father, let my words be your words.
Let my thoughts be your thoughts.
To you, I give my praise.
Show me the way. Take me in your arms. Never let me go.
Lord, show me the way, as I give myself to you.
Never let me go.
Hold me with your everlasting love.
Be my strength. Be my voice. Be my glory. Set me free.

    @wrong - Open up that closed mind of yours. I would be willing to bet that God loves this song more than a lot of hymns, because it was written from the heart.

    I got the first line tattooed on the side of my body because it reminds me everyday to trust in the lord no matter what, he gives you air and life. With out them you would be dead. So trust in the lord till the death of me

    Song obviously means that he use to be a sinner but he found the love of god and Christianity and asked for forgiveness.
    My favourite line in the song is "Soon I would end this life I was living" for it means if he never found Christianity to save him he would of killed himself.
    But I doubt he's singing about himself.
    I can relate to this song.
