Are you a fan of Jesus,
Admiring Him from afar?
Thinking of Him in the future tense,
Not right now where you are?
Oh wow He died for me,
And my sins are all forgiven,
That’s really a wonderful thing,
But right now I’m really living!
I don’t have time to be a disciple,
And church meetings are a bore,
Bible study? I’m out of school now,
I don’t need to study anymore!
Wait what’s that Lord? What did you say?
Your offering me a brand new start,
And that new start starts today?
But I’m afraid and I don’t know what to do,
What’s that, don’t panic, we’ll never be apart?
You’ll teach and help and guide me,
From right here from inside my heart?
I’m a new creation, the old has passed away,
For now on it’s me and you Lord,
Until the end of days…
This is such great news Lord, my life is clean and new,
My soul is free and happy,
And I can spend my life serving only you!
