When I first met Jesus
So very long ago, it seems
He was with me in my life & trials,
I felt Him in my dreams
He gave me peace when life didn't have any,
Though I had sought others advice,
I was lost in the doctrine of many,
Lost in self, my will I wouldn't deny.
But there was something hidden,
Lost in the redemption from pain,
He showed me what was the meaning,
That I was not to be blamed.
He opened up the scar tissue,
To bring my sorrow to the light,
He blessed me...tears pouring,
What was my ultimate shame?
The secret hidden for 32 years,
Hidden under his wing in flight,
Only when I was ready,
Did he bring my shame to the light.
Such grace, awed--inspiring,
That day I will never forget,
Just once to be held by my mother,
It was Love,
It was God sent.
