(To the tune “Le Cygne” [“The Swan”] by Camille Saint-Saëns.)
My life was empty until the day
You came and drove my sorrows all away.
Years spent on finding a better way;
I wound up lost and broken on that day.
I was so lonely and filled with sin,
I found no peace till You took me in.
Though all of life I had tasted,
All of my life had been wasted.
You took my hand and You picked me up,
Gave me the strength to find my way back home.
Now I have everything,
Living with Jesus forever and forevermore.
