Here stands a wretched soul,

A truly awful creature,

Who justice demanded Hell must have,

The utterly unlovable,

Infinitely loved by Jesus Christ.

 

Here stands a wonder of Creation

A long-dead heart alive,

An arch-rebel welcomed as a child,

The sinner declared a saint,

And by the Maker’s touch forever changed.

 

Here stands a pilgrim,

A weary soul longing for home,

Striving daily against a ceaseless foe,

The bleating, helpless sheep,

By the Father’s faithful love pushing on.

 

Here stands a restless dreamer,

With an immortal hope,

Whose faith will give way to sight,

The dark veil of life,

Soon gives way to glorious Light.

 

Here I stand.
