There I was at
the end of my rope,
Feeling as if I had no hope.
Nothing at all was going right,
My world seemed dark, where was the light?
Every day was filled with dread,
And I wished that I were dead.
I thought that death would end the strife,
But was I ready to end my life?
Something deep inside of me,
Said this is no way to be.
There has to be a better way,
To get me through another day.
A friend then told me about a book,
So I decided to take a look.
It was The Bible, which is God's Word,
And I read until my eyes blurred.
I learned and truly felt God's love,
And I lifted my eyes to the sky above.
Then I asked God into my heart,
From then on, a new life did start.
Now my life is complete,
I know not the meaning of the word defeat.
With Jesus, I am truly blessed,
And now my soul is at rest.
Jesus loves me personally,
And He lives inside of me.
He died to save me from sin,
And with me He's always been.
