I was lost, but God saw the best in me,

While shackled to my sin.

He viewed me on the Mountain-top;

Restored and healed within. Psalm 23: 3

I never thought I’d rise above

The bitterness in my heart—

Filled to the brim with selfishness;

My world was lonely and dark.

A Christian friend exposed my plight,

By sharing one brief thing…

“David was viewed as a mere shepherd boy,

But God saw in him, a King!” 1 Sam. 16: 10-12

Quickly I saw God’s view of my life;

I must ask for His power in me.

He could lift me up from this quicksand of sin; Psalm 40: 2

On the mountain-top I would be!

So my message is to all who will hear—

I’ll tell of His mighty POWER.

He has swept all the darkness of sin away:

And He strengthens me ev’ry hour! Isaiah 41: 105
