It was His love that kept me
going. That filled me up and
gave me more than i could
handle so I could give to others.
It was His strength that gave me
hope. That caused me to wake
up everyday and choose life
in the midst of hardship and pain.
It was His mercy that told me
I am forgiven. That lifted my head
and told me to get up, take my
mat and walk so that I could tell
It was His peace that calmed
my spirit in the midst of calamity.
That gave me a new vision and
opened my eyes to a stronger faith.
It was His breath that gave my soul
an essence. That provided the sweet
smelling perfume that is His radiant
light to beam and glow from the inside.
It was His blood that redeemed me.
That told me I was worth dying for.
That gave me another chance.
That told me I was chosen.
I didn’t need anyone else.
It was Him all along.
