When You Are Sinking

When I was sinking,
You pulled me out of the water.
When I was suficating,
You gave me air.

When I had gone astray,
You guided me in the right direction.
When I was drowning in sin,
You died for me.

When you had gone astray,
I tried to guide you.
When you were drowning in sin, 
I brought you to him.

NOTE: I know God could never be led astray. God said that if we do not help others it is just the same as if we did not help him.
