Written by Leigh Parsons Sexton
I heard He died on the cross for my sin
But no change had taken place I was still black within
Then the Holy Spirit introduced Himself to me
Now I see!
I love Him because He first loved me
I choose Him because He first chose me
I’m free from sin because He became sin for me
I believe I believe because of Him
There was no magic in the words I prayed that day
For the work had begun long before I knelt to pray
He knew me before He made worlds before He spoke the stars in place
Now I’m amazed!
I see what I missed He gave me this gift!
I was dead to Him and now He’s made me live!
