THE MAN I USED TO BE…by Carl Gooch

The Man I Used to be

No, I’m not perfect,
I’ve never claimed to be.
It’s just a man forgiven,
That you now see.

And I praise God above,
I’m not the man I used to be.
I am no more bound to sin;
My Lord has set me free.

It wasn’t all that long ago,
I was too blind to see.
Stumbling and fumbling,
As lost as I could be.

Yes, I praise God above,
I’m not the man I used to be.
I am no more bound to sin;
My Lord has set me free.

It doesn’t really matter,
What I’ve done you see.
What it is that really counts,
Is what He has done for me.

My Lord has set me free;
He gave a new life to me.
He was nailed to a tree,
To pay the price for me.

So I praise the Lord above,
I’m not the man I used to be.
