The forces of evil had captured me.
The light was right there, but I couldn't see;
The darkness I wanted to stay in.
Evil ensued, and I took it with a grin.
And when good things come, I wanted to flee.
But in all this dark, God's light set me free,
And I'm not going down that path again.
Now I have freedom I've not before known;
Death is consumed by abundant life,
And I am rescued by Jesus Christ's love.
This light to me was not before shown,
But now life has peace, instead of great strife;
I once sank below, now I rise above.
