I’m about to turn 16 Lord, and I’m so amazed,
at all the wondrous things you’ve done for me.
You sent your son to be captured and crucified,
Just to let the sinners free.
And even though I’m so unworthy Lord,
you’ve promised to be there forever.
And I can’t compare to you in any way...
but you want us to spend eternity together.
God I see your hands at work each and every day,
you answer prayers and grant me grace.
And while this world has many obstacles,
your love, Lord, makes them so much easier to face.
I feel like I’m surrounded by something wonderful,
something much, much bigger than mankind,
And God I know it’s you I’m feeling,
Lord, you’re always on my mind.
You’ve helped me make it this far Lord,
and I know, that you’ll carry me through so much more.
I want to live my life for you God, and I’ll do so,
till I reach heaven’s door.
Please don’t ever let me go God,
forever, let me feel your presence near.
Even when I face that dark valley of death,
I’ve got you, so I won’t fear.
Because you’re not going anywhere, oh are you Lord?
You’ve got greater plans for me.
That’s why you sent your son to be captured and crucified,
that’s why you set the sinners free.

Haha, it's not that amazing... you are very expressive in your beliefs, I think anyone could relate to this/learn from it. It's refreshing to see someone not afraid to be blatantly in love with God:) if ya know what i mean....
