Have I come So Far
Have I come so far only to be lost
In thoughts of what I have not achieved?
And at such a mourning what will be the cost
To my life and to all I have believed?
What is life to me but wasted time
And growth a step to falling back away?
And who am I to give a dime
To care what I haven't got today?
And if I listen to pity with intent
To wallow in the mud of life's dark spell,
To give away the life that I was meant
To keep and to even cherish well.
I can break the darkness I am in
For hope and love bear light that I can see
For dark as this comes not from within
But from the one who hates the light in me.
I can see far beyond the pain
Of lonely thoughts and misery
To the day where even earth will not remain
And darkness will be cast in firey sea.
And though the darkness tries, it fails
To tempt me down the path of fear.
And light and love again prevails
As to the Lord I draw near.
I come against the devil's spell
Of darkness, death and despair;
In Jesus' name all is made well,
And by His power do I care.
By His blood I am redeemed
And by His love I have release
From waht only moments ago seemed
To be the end of life and love and peace.
Praise to the Lord, to His Mighty Name!
Jesus, lamb of God and Lord above.
Precious Son of God for my sake came
In times like these to bring me love.
