And Now I See
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.
