A Salvation Prayer

From The Album: I Will Rejoice

Lyrics

Jesus, I confess that I’m a sinner
Needing Your grace
Jesus, I believe You died for me
You took my place

I know You shed Your blood on Calvary
You bore the pain so willingly
No greater love has any man
To lay down his life for a friend

Jesus, I ask You to forgive me
Of my sin
Jesus, I accept You as my Savior
And companion

I know You shed Your blood on Calvary
You bore the pain so willingly
No greater love has any man
To lay down his life for a friend

I believe You rose again and broke the chains
The chains that kept me away from You
You rose again breaking the power of sin
Taking my old life, making it new

Thank You Lord for saving me
Thank You Lord for saving me
Thank You Lord for saving me
Thank You Lord

I’ve always wondered why the salvation prayer had not been put to music. It seems a perfect way to lead people to Christ. I was compelled to do so, but also afraid not to do it justice. Then one Sunday it just poured out of me, and Sherry and I worked together to complete it.
