What Do I See

I look in the mirror and what do I see
But my old soul looking back at me 
Decrepit and sinful as I can be
I need someone to set me free 

Free from the burden I carry each day
Free from the trials that get in my way
Free from the hurt, the sorrow, the shame
Free from a life that has lost its way 

What will it take to restore my soul?
Who can redeem me and make me whole?
Who can make new something so old?
Who can make free that which sin controls?

I pick up a book that I never have read
I read of a man who came back from the dead 
He promised he'd give me a new life ahead
If I'd just believe and from my sin repent 

I fall on my knees and lift up my voice
I make up my mind and I make a new choice 
No longer will I live without any joy
I will follow Jesus and make Him my Lord

I look in the mirror and what do I see
But a soul that is saved and from sin set free
A new life was born when He heard my plea
What a great Savior is Jesus to me
