PETER’S LORD & FRIEND


You’re saved by grace your born again
Your heart’s no longer stone
Yet once again you feel the pain
As though you were alone

Has Satan’s spun his evil web?
Enticing you to sin
Witnessing thus a power ebb
From He who came within

Seeking no help from Christ The Lord
You’ll walk as Satan’s fool
Wielding once more the devil’s sword
Being his evil tool

You feel again as days of old
You’re plagued with fear and dread
Like ash, God’s Fire has grown so cold
You feel as though you’re dead

Feeling no more God’s endless flow
Feeling the feeling end
Feeling like Peter long ago
Denying Christ as friend

But Christ who saw His servant’s heart
Forgave his triple lie
Ushering in a brand new start
To serve The One on high

Take heart my fried and understand
Look deep inside and see
The living Christ is close at hand
God’s Word will set you free

God’s saving Son is always there
He’ll never let you down
He’ll give you all He has to share
With life’s eternal crown
