Man giving praise with his arms raised high towards Heaven.

And Now I See

The time has come again at last
to think about the time that's passed;
to look inside myself and see,
Am I who I'm supposed to be?

I think about my thoughts and deeds,
joy and sorrow, my wants and needs.
No one on earth could ever know
all the things that touch me so.

I must be honest with myself
to take accounting of my health.
Can I stand before the Light
and say that what I've done is right?

It is not an easy task
to look inside one's self and ask.
Have I brought dishonor to His name;
have I done things to cause Him shame?

And if I honestly assess
and find my answer to be, Yes,
with heavy heart, I must confess
the sorrow of my sinfulness.

I'm grateful that my Lord above
has a heart that's filled with love.
He has the power to forgive.
He gave me life so I could live.

I long, someday, to see His face;
to thank Him for amazing grace
that set this captive sinner free
and loosed the bonds that buried me.
