The Savior

 

Jesus holds a lamb and walks among the sheep. Text overlay reads: "The Savior; by Sean Christopher Wolfe
Jesus the Good Shepherd by Bernard Plockhorst at PublicDomainPictures.net

He saved me, from myself

My anger dwelled inside, for years

From child to teen to adult

I traveled the rivers of my own tears

 

Finally, after a journey of trouble

I chose the path that led to Him

I tried to hold onto the pain

I wanted to stay in the grim

 

Darkness and Sin surrounded

The water of life washed me free

The Light pierced the flesh

My Father had me use my eyes to see

 

Haunt me no more

The painful screams

The fear of failure

The scary dreams

 

My Father claims me

And I claim Him

I rely on prayer

And on Holy Hymn


Thank you, My God

Thank you, Holy Spirit

Christ saved my life

So, I no longer fear it
