I can still remember the day I laid eyes on You
My heart skipped a beat as I knew you were True.
With a spirit of tender love, and selflessness
Opposing Your captivating beauty, I was helpless.
Whenever in Your arms I found rest.
Through borrowed strength; I could withstand any test.
With eyes on You, I could climb any mountain
Our relationship grew deeper than any well or fountain…
I can still remember the day I left You
Wouldn’t admit it, but on came ‘the blues’
Depression lingered despite numerous views
Thought pleasures of this world could amuse…
I drank and drank the world’s Kool-Aid
Made me happy for a minute but was only a band-aid
That delayed the reality of deep, hurting pain
Dry and desolate in need of cleansing rain.
I can still remember the day I returned
Ashamed and eyes filled with tears; they burned
Thought certainly I had lost You for good
Instead you proposed to me with arms wide-open; hands nailed on wood.
“Welcome to my family, child, you’re the Church, my Bride
It’s time to lift your veil; you no longer need to hide…”
You see, I’m loved; bruises and all
And I’m lifted up, every time I fall
Not a single need that can’t be met
As a fisher of men; He fills my net.
The purpose of my life has been revealed
And my scars are continually healed
It’s so great to be refocused on things above;
Christ, the King of Kings, is and forever will be, my first love.
