From the start You've held a place in my heart
A place that no one else could fill
But sin kept Your spirit from working in me
I couldn't look at life honestly
Until the day my will gave away to the truth that I found in you
I never knew just how good it could be
To stand in Your presence totally free
Now...

I'm forgiven
Now I have a reason for living
Jesus keeps giving and giving
Giving till my heart overflows
(Repeat)

Now I can see me as a person who's free
Even when I slip and fall
You are a God who forgives and forgets
Now I want to give you my all
Cause...

(Repeat Chorus)

I know this love You placed in my heart
Is a love that will never depart
Sin brought me here to the end of my rope
But now you've given me a brand new hope
I'm forgiven.

    Looking back over the years, both before and after i accepted christ as my savior, i see the mistakes i've made?all the wrong choices. But i also know that those roads brought me to a place where i knew i had to decide give up my will and let my lord take over. It's been a sweet journey ever since... Trust in the lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
