Though I knew the bible and I thought it was your word,
I was living my own life because your voice I'd never heard.
Then one day the preaching seemed to me to be so real.
In that moment what my head had known my heart began to feel
On Calvary You died for me
Just as You planned
So here am I asking "why?"
Trying to understand
And the tears run down my face
When I see you in my place.
So I will sing and I will show
In everything let people know
The wonder of amazing grace.
On that day I started on a journey with my Lord.
And at first He was the centrepiece, the one that I adored.
But with failure comes a voice that robs you of your peace
And I needed once again to learn the truth that brings release.
Now I know the hope of heaven doesn't rest with me.
My assurance comes from trusting in the cross of Calvary.
And I won't be beaten by the devil and his lies,
I'll forget what is behind and press ahead to win the prize.
