At a time in my life when I should have known peace
Bm C D
In my work and my home and my search to increase
I found every thing empty, I found it a loss
Am C D
Until Jesus came preaching of life on the Cross!
When the Lord calls a man, and He gives him a clue
of the life to be lived by faith through and through…
He first breaks and removes all the dross, and in time
D C G
He changes each part of his heart and his mind.
This Jesus, He's something much more than He seemed
His words pierced much deeper than I ever dreamed
They called me to look beyond struggles with self
To a life that was changed - from me to Himself
(No Chorus after this verse - go straight to next verse)
But that Life that He spoke of, was not His one goal
It was others, oh others in darkness untold
Jesus needed a man who would learn how to die
Not just to his sin, but the bondage of pride
Oh Satan, he grips with a powerful hold
And seeks to defeat us with failures untold
But in spite of it all, we can finally begin
to strengthen with grace and to help the breth-ren!
