How I thought

I want to be truthful in this poem that I write
My thoughts about heaven which I thought was right
I thought that living in a christian country
Made me a christian too
Don't kill no-one, and try my best that will surely do
I didn't go to church, I didn't even pray
I thought that if I could be quite good
Then I would be ok
I know I've made a few mistakes
A few white lies you see
But I thought that if I was still quite good
That will do for me
So there are just a few little words of how I used to be
And now I will write some more
And share the change in me
If I could get into heaven by just being good
Then Christ died for nothing when He shed His blood
God has changed me now you see
And opened up my eyes
No more I am following, following satan's lies
Salvation is a gift from God that He's given me
The price it cost Him was His Son when He died for me
So I thank the Lord for saving me and showing me the way
I declare it's nothing I have done, in His grace I stand today.
