When I look at my life as it was before
Riddled with strife to the bitter core
How did I get here? How did things change?
I remember the night; the night You came
I was going down, but wasn’t everyone?
I tried to hold the beats together till the song was done
Caught between options; hope was no choice
Then among the echoes came one clear voice
I had to come back and say thank You
I had to do more than just go on my way
With the rest of my life I’ll praise You
And the world will hear me say...
You are my King, You are my God
You’re my Master, You are my Friend
Though the mountains tremble and the earth gives way
I will love You to the end
You have taken the rags of past slavery
And by each word you speak I am more free
The word that I heard is the life I now live
And the light that I saw is a fire within
