Could I present myself to you and introduce just me?
Look at my brown hair, hazel eyes, and yet there’s more to see.
A smiling face I try to have, some humor and some puns,
Rich I am not, but still I go to places and have fun.
Each task I get I try to do the very best I can,
Now I’m not saying I don’t fail, for I am just a man.
Church means a lot to me, I know, and that I don’t regret;
Each time I go I learn some more on how to better get.
Before I say good-bye to you, there’s something you should know:
I once was bound by awful sin, a life of shame and woe.
Love reached out to my soul one day, and when it came I knew
Life everlasting could be mine if something I would do.
How glad I was when then by faith I trusted and obeyed,
Eternal life right then was mine when Christ my Lord was made.
I cannot thank Him now enough for all He did for me,
My poems and songs just naturally share His grace that set me free.
Each time I think of all He’s done, I cannot help but cry;
Redemption’s grace, His matchless love I’ll sing until I die.
