Adopted

 
 I’ve squandered my existence on things I should not do
 I’ve travelled many roads where I truly should not go
 I’ve spoken many words that I never should have said
 I’ve done so many things that should have left me dead
  
 One day I was just walking with a  friend of mine
 He told me about Jesus and His love sublime
 I thought about that message and bowed my head in prayer
 Jesus saved me from myself right then and there
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 Now I do my best to walk with Him each day
 Sometimes I wander off the path and lose my way
 Bet He is quick to rescue me and take me in His arms
 He never lets me suffer long or come to any harm
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 An heir of the kingdom, His promises are mine
 His will has been written and my name is on the line
 I’ll praise Him forever with all my heart and soul
 For he is my Savior and my Lord
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
