Without your love I was lost in a raging sea.
Without your guidance the devils hand was upon me. (1 Peter 5:8)

Without your Spirit I was led easily astray.
Life was all about me and doing it my way

Without your love, the world was dark, and filled with sorrow
There was no joy in my life just worries about tomorrow. (Isaiah 59:1-2)

All I craved was good times and having fun. (John 8:34)
I was so alone and ran from Jesus your Son.

Now I can hear your voice rustling through the trees.
I am able to feel your presence in a warm summer breeze.

There is not a moment in time that I don’t’ need your love.
I cannot fathom living without your blessings from above.

I long for the day when believers receive their inheritance.
When they see you face to face and are in your presence.

It grieves my heart to witness sin throughout our land. (Proverbs 14:34)
Through your grace you cry out to just take your hand.

I mourn for those who will not draw near.
They are haughty and proud and for them I fear. (Proverbs 16:5)

Without your love the sky was just blue and the flowers were just nice.
Without your mercy my eternal damnation would have been the price. (Romans 6:23)
