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
