While living in a place of darkness, my life was mired in sin. Yet God led me to that rugged cross, where I became born again.
Many times His call would come, yet His message just was not heard. I was bound in darkness, chained to sin, and refused to believe His word.
One day I was up against the wall, I had no other place left to run. There I stood facing the cross of Jesus, and there I met God’s Son.
I opened the bible and read what was written, and soon I began to cry. I found out I could live forever, and His promise that I would never die.
There before the Lamb of God, I offered to Him my all. My eyes were now clear; my ears were now opened, as I finally heard His call.
I asked my Lord to forgive my sins, as the darkness began to part. I felt a love that was more real than life, as His Spirit came into my heart.
I knew that I would be forever different, and that I was free at last. There at the foot of the rugged cross, is where I crucified my past.
