Dead to Self. . .
. . . and Alive to God
Are you now trusting in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of your sins and the fulfillment of all God's promises to you, even eternal life?
. . . I am.
. . . I do.
With a Christian home I was greatly blessed
For knowing God was always stressed
Foundations deep were layed of trust
My God was always known as just
Doctrines true were taught to me
And "to be saved" I longed to be
I aught to "do His will" I learned
I took small steps; in faith I yearned
So many more things I needed to know
In knowledge of sin I continued to grow
Forgiveness for failing I asked o'er and o'er
For graces I thanked Him and learned more and more
And then as I walked on, He showed me His face
The great peace of knowing!--I thanked Him for grace
I continue to follow with stumbling tread
A new joy I found in Christ raised from the dead
Such worth in His person! Such value I see!
He formed every cell, all the land, all the sea
His greatness, and love for me, glory above
Once shown of these beauties I cannot but love
Creation I can and cannot comprehend
So you see I cannot see my Creator's end
How I long to go up and see Christ on His throne
So that I could love Him with all of my own
But right here on earth I shall stand till He call
To show Jesus' value to you and to all
If I can have Christ, you can take all my stuff
For by Him I've found and know: Christ is enough
