Looking at your lifetime
Years passing as days
Today blurs into next year
Nothing really to gain

All my life is harsh
Confusing if you will
Time and time I set to change
Nothing ever will

I’ve tried to lift myself up
It just doesn’t work
One day some sickness
Undoes all I’ve done

Enemies all around me
I’m the worst of all
Help someone hear me
It seems just like a fall

Jesus came to see me
Spoke just like I hear
He said I could ask Him
He would bring me near

Near to the heart of God
Make me God’s friend
The Lord is offering me a chance
To really change the way I live

The opportunity is mine
I can claim this gift
A life with Christ as Savior
A life that exactly fits
