I’ve bowed down before the gods of this age
More times than I care to admit,
Given in to seductive siren songs
Made my bed in hell’s deepest pit.

I’ve crashed on this world’s treacherous shore
Felt the full weight of darkness and sin,
Then in anguish cried, “Jesus please save me!”
And in mercy The Holy came in.

Now fear and despair are behind me
I’m no longer lonely and lost,
For Jesus is mine and I am His
And His praise I could never exhaust!
