You opened the door of life to me,
Your light of love shone through.
You offered me a hand to hold
and peace I never knew.
Never before could I have dreamt that love like Yours existed, but on the day that You came in, I knew I was accepted.
Deep down within my heart is stored
a well of thanks and praise
that rises up when I think about
the wonder of Your ways.
The Perfect Shepherd You have been,
I’ve seen Your hand of care.
The Perfect Friend in everything,
Who’s present everywhere.
The Perfect Light along my path,
the One Who guides my way;
the Perfect Source of strength and hope,
through each and every day.
Without You Jesus in my life,
I’d never have made it through;
for Yours is the love that stands the test,
it’s perfect, pure and true.
I pray this love will shine, O Lord,
so someone else may see
that there is life, that there is hope
in You eternally.
