God looked inside my heart today
and saw exactly what I needed.
I was cold and hungry and so afraid,
but He with gentle love proceeded
to fill my mind with hope and light
and feed me with His bread of life.
He lit my path with vision bright,
assuaged my pain and eased my strife.
He nudged me with His loving hand,
unlocked the chains around my soul.
He gave me strength to bravely stand,
forgave my sins and made me whole.
