Salvation

Salvation

You saw my sin, my back was turned
I lived inside the dark
I'd fallen so far off the path
I could not disembark.

I searched for exits, any signs
That I might turn and flee
I did not recognize my Prince
Who came to set me free.

You whispered and I heard your voice
Yet still I sought in vain
But when I felt you touch my heart
It's there I knew you'd reign.

My Lord, The Lamb you did become
You rose and conquered death
And with your everlasting love
You gave me daily breath.

You swept me off my feet with love
You wiped away my tears
You lifted up my eyes to yours
And vanquished all my fears.

Your Spirit now abides inside
I've died to sin; what's more
Your grace and mercy empty me
Then fills this reservoir.

Your love pours in, it overflows
My heart is opened wide
I am a living sacrifice
From you I cannot hide.

With you I soar on eagle's wings
Without, in doubt descend;
I walk, I stumble, fall and yet
You raise me up again.
