My faith is in Him above,
It’s to Him I send my love.
But once upon a time, you see,
My soul was trapped, it was not so free.
I turned to drugs to escape my fears,
I’ve cried a hundred thousand tears.
Because in the dark I was blind,
To all God’s blessings to mankind.
This went on for several years,
Continuing on with all my fears.
Until one day, I saw the light,
For my soul, I must fight.
I pray to Him, whom I love,
My God, my Savior, the one above.
I ask forgiveness, far all my sins,
A new life now, my soul begins.
I spread the word, all around,
That it’s His love, I have found.
His love is there, for all to see,
It’s Him alone, who sets us free.
So I tell you now, everyone,
The fight with Satan, I have won.
For now, I see, the wonderful light,
This is how I truly know, I’ve won the fight.
