He leads me out of dungeons of despair;
Releases Satan's hold upon my soul.
He is my Friend when no one seems to care;
He never fails to comfort and console.

He plants His seed of kindness in my heart;
He teaches me to love and cherish life.
He gives me strength to carry on, to start
Each day anew. He helps me deal with strife.

When I push Him aside He angers not,
But patiently He waits and gently calls
Me back into His fold. I don't know what
I'd do without His love. He cushions falls.

Can I imagine life without Him? Never!
Someday I know I'll live with Him forever.
