Because He Told Me So

 Because He Told me So


I Danced with Demons and Devils
And Sipped the Wine of Death.
Everything Was Falling Apart
Sinking down with Every Breath.

To Go on That Way Was Folly,
So I Would Take My Life.
I Gave No Thought to Family,
Or What Would Become of My Wife.

I Raised the Gleaming Knife
And Aimed it at My Breast.
Tonight I'd Find Some Peace
And at Last I Would Rest

But Something Stayed My Hand
And I Could Not Stab it In.
Try as I Might I Couldn't Move...
I Could Not See My End.

Then a Voice Soft  and Low
Said," You've Better Things to Do
Then Dance with Demons and Devils..
Don’t You Know I Love You Too?

That's the Night I Learned
I Wouldn't Have to Go
Jesus Really Loves Me..
Because He Told Me So.

The demons and devils are gone now
Replaced by God’s glorious light
I have a beautiful  new love in my heart
And the dawning of each new day  …….
                                         is a wonderful delight
Connie Moore
