He came into my life

When I was just a tad

Filling my heart with joy

Making me so glad

He opened my eyes

To wonders unseen

Replacing hate with love

No more to be mean

He saved me from oblivion

He lifted my voice in praise

Singing the love of the son

Each and every day

He is the redeemer

The hope of mankind

He is the teacher

Who turned the water to wine

He is the Lamb of God

Sent to save our souls

His sacrifice for our sins

Cleanses us and makes us whole.

Believe and be saved

Is easy enough to do

Repent of your sins to him

And he will forgive you

Lord, I am but a sinner

Not following in your ways

I pray for you cleansing blood

To take my sins away.

Make my soul white as snow

Use me like you did Saul

Guide me where I should go

Give me utterance as Paul.

I put my life in your hands

Precious Lord, lead me on

Whether here or foreign lands,

Help me repair all I have done.

In your Holy Name I pray,

Make it so today.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16.  Would you sacrifice your son to save the world.  How hard must that have been. How much more love could be shown to mankind in that one act and for his son to face all the temptations and accept that this was to be his fate.
