WRETCHED BUT SAVED

WRETCHED BUT SAVED

I started smoking at ten
I went clubbing all evening till ten
At twenty, marijuana was my pen
I was so empty and barren.

I thought Jesus belonged to Children,
and Christianity ended in Athens
To me, men should be slaughtered as hens
I didn’t care about other Men
I robbed men of clothes and linen
I was the worst of all Men.

A day came, I felt near my end
I was so heartbroken
I wanted to make amends
I felt my life was out of amends
I tried but failure was the trend
I was one whose world couldn’t bend
I felt terrible like my life would end
Until I met “the beginning and the end.”

He came in and changed my trend
He rescued me, for His love never ends
It is far above all stipends
Now, His grace helps me make amends
He is indeed a trusted friend
That’s not the end.

Here’s the gist
By grace, I can now resist,
Even when temptations persist
His Spirit is there to assist
And He holds my wrist
I live by His word in my fist
I’m changed, I’m an Evangelist.

Dear, what’s your History?
Jesus can change your story
Regardless of your history
You don’t have to end in the gory.

Come to Jesus, Come into glory
For His blood paid your dowry
Don’t end up in a sorrowful gory
Come to Jesus, Join His Glory

Hallelujah

But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, forgiving us our sins and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
