My life before was but a vapor

No sense of direction, a constant stupor

That was the thinking of a carnal mindset

An empty pathway to where I was at

One despondent day when I was sixteen

A cousin shared to me how Jesus intervene

Her life was like mine, a whisper in the void

Until she met Jesus her life no longer destroyed

I said, “I want that life the Lordship pf Christ.”

He was nailed on the Cross the ultimate sacrifice

The joy He gave me was inexplicable

My life that was empty has now become full

Life is empty without the presence of God

Darkness disappears at the entrance of light

It is only in God’s presence that full joy can be found

A life of contentment where His grace abound

Now that I understood what these verses mean

The path of life you lead me are changes within

The fullness of joy is in your presence Lord

My Redeemer, my Master, it’s all in His Word.
