From a Christian Girl

So I’d like to formally introduce you to the man that saved my life

He’s very near to my heart

Pretty average

Except for the fact that he, ya know

Conquered the grave

Gave the blind man sight

He’s the one who destroyed the hate

But wasn’t too late to save me too

 

I’d like to really introduce you to the one I call “Savior”

He has overcome the behavior of what the world does to “haters”

And I’m dreaming of the day where when I say his name

He gets all the glory he deserves

He gets all the honor in the world

 

I’d like to formally introduce you to the man that saved my life

Giving blood for a cause that was much less than our right

I’d like to show you the nails that pierced his skin

Show you the laughter

Show you the end

And show you the sting of death in his eyes

And ask you why he pushed us out from in front of the bus

When we were so worthy

We were so worthy

 

I’d like to introduce you to the man that gave me life

In the dark days,

He brought in the light

In the hopeless nights

He was the one to put me back in the fight

 

I'd like to introduce you to the man who fought that fight

He said, "I've got you covered"

To the shunned and the lost

Extending all the way to me

Not stopping at my feet

 

Please allow me to introduce you to the man who changed my life

His heart is bigger than my shame

Bigger than my disasters

His lessons are greater than the persecution

Greater than the confusion

Greater than the loss

Greater than everything I have

Than everything I am

 

So I'd like to formally introduce you to the man who saved my life

Without further ado

Jesus Christ
