To my first love

             Yes, life was then good and I had peace
             Until in the dark, I was stabbed in the back 
             By the dicey devil whom I now hear tease 
             I’m left alone to handle my life with luck

             Yesterday, alcohol led me into a gutter
             Where debris of my past were left for me to gather
             To be the map to the peace I search
             Back into the arms of my childhood church

             What about these drugs and girls I lust?
             The gambling with which I have my pleasure?
             To a life devoid of drugs, and even to fast?
             Well, I hope it will lead me to that priceless treasure

             To a place I can finally lay down my burden
             Where I can finally watch the past crumble and fall
             Where the living streams of water cleanses sin
             Back to the one I love, unto Jesus will I give my all

            On His mighty shoulders will I cast the guilt I suffer
            And forget all the devil promised but failed to offer
            As I jump and dance myself from the chains of slavery
            To enjoy the peace He sacrificed on the cross of Calvary
