I Was the Fool
© 2011 Tom D Blakely
I was the fool who found pleasure in sin
Wantonly playing the Devil’s own game.
One day I started to reap what I’d sown
I was tormented, depressed and alone.
Thank you my Father for showing the way
Saving a sinner, so worthless a stray;
Sending me Jesus to die for my sin
Granting me peace and forgiveness through Him.
I see my Saviour in glory and power
He is my help and my strength, hour by hour.
Soon He shall call me to meet Him above
I long for heaven, to rest in His love.
‘The fool has said in his heart, There is no God.’
