Redeemed, Reborn, Refreshed

When I was alone, afraid, destroyed, and utterly condemned,
His voice of love called out to me and named me as His friend,
I stood in hope, but still confused, my skin began to shed,
My sin a crown of thorns removed and placed on Him instead,
All of my flesh and self consumed, refined in Holy flame,
Renewed through grace I got new life, was given His own name,

I fell today in shame and dread, I thought I was alone,
But gracious and faithful as He is, He rescued His seed sown,
A sprout of life now grew within and steadily matured,
Even when life seems full of trials He keeps this child secured,
I walk the way alive in hope, to know Him is true life,
No more alone, but full of praise for Jesus sacrifice,

His perfect love casts out all fear, defeating evil's horde
Jesus my way, my truth, my life, my ever loving Lord

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philipians 4:4"
