I Am, I Thought, Then God

I am lost in a sea of minutes and hours

I am trapped in a castle, locked in it's towers

I am floating through life like a leaf on a breeze

I am crushed by my fears and left on my knees


I thought you would help or that you would save me

I thought I was damned and that no one forgave me

I thought that the sky would swallow me whole

I thought that my sin had taken it's toll


Then god picked me up and taught me to live

Then god showed me that to love we must give

Then god filled my heart and allowed me to see

Then god broke my chains and set me free
