remember as a child, in a peaceful little town
A little country church, where Jesus I first found.
only ten and didn't know much about right living
I knew nothing about the love that God was giving.
heard the preacher saying, He loved you enough to die
Won't you give your heart to Him? I remember that I cried.
wondered why He'd die for me, I wondered why He would.
I was just a little kid and didn't think I was that good.
could a king love little me, who had never done anything great
But I knew I wanted Him in my life, and I just couldn't wait.
the preacher saying, won't you come now and pray
I went to the altar and gave Jesus my heart that day.
