One Day I Stood

One day I stood in emptiness
Without a place to go,
Looking at my filthy sin,
The tears began to flow.

I felt so helpless... with no hope
Of making change in me.
As my head dropped in shame,
I fell upon my knees.

I cried out, " Lord if you are there,
My sins, please take away.
This burden is so heavy
I can't bear this load today.

I need a heart transplant Lord,
Which only you can do.
Forgive me of my sinful life
I give my heart to you."

Suddenly an inner peace
Filled my heart and soul,
And when I rose from my knees,
I knew I'd been made whole.

You can have the same this day,
If to the Lord you'll go.
Cry out to Him, He'll hear your plea;
Forgiveness He'll bestow.

His love for you can't be described,
In a few simple words.
But if you spend some time with Him,
He'll change your heart that hurts.

He'll take you from the deepest pit...
And fill you with His love;
Then take you to the mountaintops
To show you things above.
