A New Light
All my life I’ve went astray,
I’ve always thought alcohol & drugs were the way.
But now I see in a brand new light,
For my soul this addiction, I must fight.
To win this battle, I’ll need Him above,
I’ll need all His patience, and all His love.
For it’s my faith in Him, now I see,
That will take these demons, away from me.
To these demons, my soul I thought I lost,
But faith in God is all it cost.
To change ways of life in sin,
I now deep Jesus within.
It’s because of Him, the Holy Son,
My new life now has just begun.
Alcohol & drugs I no longer fear,
Because praying through Jesus, God is near.
I keep Him close, within my heart,
Never again shall we part.
He’s with me in everything I do,
He’s always there to guide me through.
