Once I was adrift, awash in dark sin
I had no purpose deep within.
My soul was lost to worldly ways,
Then I found out that Jesus saves.
The old family Bible willed to me
Opened my eyes that I may see,
Satan's path I was racing down
Would never take me Heaven bound.
I read that frayed Bible every day
Then on my knees I would pray,
I prayed God make me pure again,
A reborn child free from sin.
For the first time in all these years
My mind is free I know no fears,
Satan's shackles are cast aside
And in my heart the Lord abides.
Jesus washed all my sins away
I'm a happier person every day,
He is my daytime guiding light,
My guardian through the night.
The old family Bible saved my soul
By pointing the way for me to go.
I had to kneel before I could stand
Before my God as a saved man.
