I Am A Child Of God
Since Jesus came into my heart,
His presence I always feel.
He totally changed my outlook on life,
When He marked me with His seal.
I want others to know this feeling,
For it is the greatest 'high.
'Nothing can ever compare to it,
So I don’t even try.
The inner peace that I now have
I value more highly than gold.
I don’t have many material things,
But still I have riches untold.
No closer friend could I possess,
For He never leaves my side.
When daily problems come my way,
It’s Him in whom I confide.
When I came to God’s attention,
My life was filled with mistakes and discord,
His justice couldn’t dismiss my sin,
But His mercy was my reward.
When He sacrificed His only Son,
The gates of hell to me were closed.
Instead heaven’s gates swung open to me,
When Jesus, the Christ, I chose.
When Jesus became my Savior,
God adopted me as His child.
With the certainty of eternal life,
Oh, it makes this life worthwhile!
Not only did God pardon me,
I can now use the name of His Son.
Whatever I ask in Jesus’ name,
God promises it will be done.
I have a place at God’s table.
Jesus reserved my place for free.
One day I’ll join all the others,
Who are saved by grace like me.
