I am amazed at the change God has brought to my life. I was helpless and lost with little hope or joy in my life. Now I can still say I am strong in the Lord with a heart full of Salvation’s songs.
He Gives me Strength and a Song
Once I was bound by the chains of sin,
They were impossible to break for they were deep within.
I tried and tried to do what was right and true;
But in the end it was a battle I would lose.
Words of condemnation would taunt and sneer,
Loud sounds of hopeless-despair in my ear.
But one day there was Light,
The Truth and The Way came into sight.
At His request I listened to and heard Salvation’s plan;
If I would trust Him He would change who I am.
I opened up my heart for Him to abide.
My Lord then moved deep inside.
I was born-again, a new creature in Christ.
He now rules and reigns in my life.
He gave me strength and a song to sing;
He is my Savior-King.
Now I am bound by chains of love for my Lord,
My heart willingly travels forward,
Ready and able to fight the good fight;
Declaring the mighty works of God in my life,
Shining the light that now lives within.
When another finds the way. all glory I bring back to Him.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:
therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
