Love Rescued Me
God’s holy word lights my way,
And His Spirit helps me each day.
Step by step ever closer I seek.
It’s more than a feeling or mental;
It is for me basic life’s fundamental.
I’ve sworn an oath, a sincere vow;
That to my God alone will I bow.
This world is filled with wickedness.
Each day I face the devils dark arts,
Yet I’m shielded from his fiery darts.
Accept my life as a tribute of praise,
I will serve you till the end of my days.
From birth I’m sinful and undeserving.
You looked down and saw my pitiful plight,
Your love rescued me from an endless night.
