If this had been brought up many years ago
When I was so worldly and ungodly
Quite likely it would be that I just turn away
Boldly make a hundred and one lame excuses
But that is the past my friends
Then I had not a single notion of God’s love
No faith, no joy in the Lord
What did I not know or encounter then?
The faithfulness of God
His goodness, love and mercy
His compassion for a poor sinner like me
Yes, some understanding I do now have
A wee bit more
A great deal more
Who, what, when, where, why and how?
Last night, I witnessed one more person
A man of prayer who gives his life to our Lord
So I rejoiced with my brethren at Holy Trinity Church
Well done! Well done, indeed!
One life only to live and to give
Go where He beckons and life is all yours
Fully, abundantly and richly lived!
Now there is no excuse for me
Having come to experience God’s faithfulness
Having been sustained by Him all these years
I will never say that I know not His love
That would be the biggest lie if ever uttered
Yes, God so loved the world that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ so all who believe in Him will not perish but may have eternal life.
May? Yes, the choice is ours to make
What is yours?
