I Found Abundant Life

  I Found Abundant Life  
I FOUND ABUNDANT LIFE
 
With plans devised and courage bold
I ventured forth to gain my goal
Of earning wealth and winning fame
And bringing glory to my name
Until one day I met the Christ
And found in Him Abundant Life!

With Schemes and plans that left out God
I lived for self not thought it odd
That I, without a thought of halting
Felt justified in self-exalting
Until one day I met the Christ
And found in Him Abundant Life!

I did not care what price I paid
To have my will and way always
Nor did I question any scheme
If it fulfilled my selfish dream
Until one day I met the Christ
And found in Him Abundant Life!

He broke my stubborn will completely
When in my heart He whispered sweetly
"Behold my dying on the Cross
For you that you may not be lost"
It was that instant I trusted Christ
And found in Him Abundant Life!
