The church steeple white with snow
People inside and windows aglow
The warmth of the blessings in each heart
As the choir sings, "How Great Thou Art".
I stand out in the bitter cold
I heard the story as it was told,
By my parents many years ago
I knew this was the place I should go.
Many hurts had befallen me
I stood there crying, not able to see
My hands were cold, but it froze my heart
That I turned on the Great Thou Art!
I entered into the doors, so heavy
My feet were froze, my eyes were cloudy
I heard the choir finish the song
God made me feel that here I belong.
After hearing God's powerful Word
Another voice in me, my heart was stirred
I walked forward when the invitation was given
I walked ahead and gave Jesus my sin.
He gladly took and placed it at the cross
He then smiled and said, "It's gone, don't worry!"
I felt His loving embrace surround me
I knew that Jesus had set me free!
