From The Heart
Freed from all our sin and shame, when we profess His Name,
When in our heart we believe, the Saving Truth that we receive.
It’s with our mouth we confess, and The Lord does all the rest,
As a sinner, by God, is saved, from a life that is so depraved.
Many don’t know that they are in, Satan’s bondage to their sin,
As they continue on each day, living this life the same old way,
In the way prescribed by him, the devil, who’s master of all sin,
Wanting you just busy enough, so not to seek The Lord above.
It is sin that keeps us apart, from The Lord, right from the start,
And it’s sin leading us astray, so not to find God’s narrow way,
God’s narrow way to abundant life, in the name of Jesus Christ,
Which God gives to everyone, who professes God’s Only Son.
With our confession my friend, we begin a life that has no end,
As God save us from the dark, on a new life in Him we embark,
New life freeing our very soul, as we are made spiritually whole,
As we are lead out of the night, to live within The Savior’s Light.
It is the belief within our heart, that helps us to, from sin depart,
To live our life for Christ anew, in freedom given to me and you,
Believing that Christ, who died, and is now by His Father’s side,
Is coming back, for all of us, who in Him have placed their trust.
