Five Minute Friday: NEW
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
The lyrics to the old song:
This prison’s your home now
There’s no hope for you
You’ve traveled too far in the wrong direction
shame and guilt is the garment you’ll wear
All you can do now is smile…pretend
And, the lyrics to the new song:
You rescued me, Lord
How can this be?
I didn’t deserve it
yet you chose to love me
My past now erased, every sin wiped away
You took hold of my hand
Your grace led me here
freedom and peace is now what I wear!
