I saw the light that pierced my heart,
and shattered my pride.
I was exposed for my hidden sins,
there was nowhere to hide.
I humbly came before the Lord,
I asked him to forgive me.
A merciful God and the blood of Jesus,
I was set free.
I saw the light that broke the darkness,
from my day.
The light that came from God,
who saved my life today.
My sinful nature was cast away,
my new life began.
By the grace of God and my redeemer,
I was born again.
I saw the light that shook my soul,
I was no longer the same.
By a loving God and his only Son.
my whole life was changed.
Now my darkness is behind me,
a new path is just ahead.
My old self had to go,
I have a new self instead.
