Iím shedding my pounds of my useless sins
Steppiní out of anger accepting this new joy thatís within
Within my soul that used to be so incomplete
Iíve submitted myself humbly as I kneel down at his feet
I have this adoration for Christís salvation
No contemplation of which direction should I go
Heís proved his love and granted me with mercy that will forever flow
So what profits a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?
See he didnít terminate me, exterminate me, eliminate me nor desert me-- in spite of all my wrong doing
Christ saved me and raised me, never played me and gave me a new life worth pursuing
He healed me and filled me, I rejected him yet he still loved me- never concealed his worship from me
OH! My brothers and sisters--come sup with me and partake in these words of inspiration
For this Christian walk is going to be hard-so be strong-donít give in to the devilís temptation
No more New Yearís resolutions of when I will to chose to let God take control of my mess
See why would I want to hold myself back and not reap my blessings of harvest?
The Lord has a plan for my direction-although Iím short of perfection
Iím getting self out of the way--for no more further delays
For when the praises go upÖ.bad baggage goes away!
Iím letting Christ be my guide, my leader, and chauffeur-- Iíll never mumble another faithless word
Never be deterred and deferred--his written word I have not misheard
For I thank him and praise him--honor him and worship himÖfor I have been DELIVERED!
