Jesus Saves
JJust as I was, my Lord died for me; (1)
EEven though I was shackled, now I am free. (2)
SSin was my nature, I had no love for God; (3)
UUnrepentant I ran down a path very broad. (4)
SSevere is God’s judgment poured out against sin; (5)
SStill shame and regret showed my conscience within. (6)
AAnd just when it seemed that my life was a waste; (7)
VVictory came when my sin He erased. (8)
EEverything’s different 'cause He rose from the grave; (9)
SSo before God I now bow, no longer sin’s dirty slave. (10)

Father in Heaven, I pray that the truth of Your Word will touch and convert many who are lost. I was blind to Your love. I turned my back on Your truth. I closed my ears to Your call. I lived a life worthy of damnation. Yet in Your grace and mercy, You saw fit to snatch me from the very gates of hell. Please father, use this devotion to draw others to Yourself. It is Your Word that brings freedom and eternal life. I love You and praise You in the name of Christ my savior, Amen.
