In the beginning
It was just me
Alone and fearful
How could I be free?

Wanting to be
A powerful one
In my heart
I felt undone

So many times
So many ways
Life trod me down
Beat out my fun

All along
Nagging at me
A need for something
To make me free

Free from fear
A friend of peace
Those were the things
I sought for me

Jesus came
Touched my heart
I saw my sin
It kept me apart

Apart from the Lord
My creator and King
Jesus forgave me
My life was set free

Now I know
Someone cares
He loves me
By His power I am free
