When God's Mercy Saw Me

When God’s Mercy Saw Me



I was once so lost

Miles away from His ways and righteousness

Totally submerged in depravity and sinfulness

From my thoughts to every word of my mouth

A moment by moment outburst of carnality

So offending to the One Holy Living God

Oh my hearts cherished so much idolatry

Selfish ambitions and obsessions just to name a few

So much darkness ruled my heart

That made my life so miserable and sorrowful

How can I be set free from this life of sin?

But one day, His heart lay hold of me

His Word pierces through the darkness of my heart

Penetrating through every piece of my soul

Shattering my total being

Setting me free from guilt and sin

Cleansing me deep within

Truly the Lord is awesome

For giving me new life, new nature and new beginning

Apart from God’s saving grace

I will never be delivered from this body of sin

Truly I can never forget the day when God’s mercy saw me.
