For most of my life I lived in fear
I didn’t believe that God was near
I was living in sin and lost my way
Like an ole dog living astray
I didn’t know which way to go
I was living a lie and hoped it didn’t show
I was more confused than I was lost
I paid the price but never counted the cost
I was searching around always on the prowl
If you got close I would bark and growl
I had often used people to get what I want
There were consequences that came to haunt
They came and haunted me day and night
I was lost in the world and losing this fight
I was lost in drugs and they had me hooked
When I hit bottom I started to look
I lived with a woman who lost a son
In a custody battle that wasn’t any fun
As a result I sought out a church
I thought she needed help because she was hurt
I sought out a church to help her find her way
But it was me who needed to stay
She gave me a message from the bottom of her heart
She told me to trust Jesus He would give me a new start
It took me a while but I stopped committing crime
One night I heard a message and then started to rhyme
I submitted my life over to this Christ
I quit letting the devil take me for a heist
I open my heart and let Christ have His way
For my heart is the place that God’s Spirit stays
For it was God who was with me all along
He’s the only one that can make me strong
I lean on God’s Spirits along the way
For He is the one who helps me to not stray
