The shadows lengthen, a new day has gone
Just history in a life that went wrong
My good intentions were only hot air
Whatever I touched I could not see You there.
‘You should’ and ‘you shouldn’t’ was all that I heard
How I wished that I ‘wasn’t’ and not standing there
But You had a plan, Lord, and I was Your man
Now I see You before me; Yes I am Your man.
New mornings are dawning, new chances for me
To learn of the Christ who had died on the tree
I can walk now in triumph; He rose from the grave
I’m a sinner, who’s a winner, with the Jesus Who saves.
