A Better Way

I’d been a mess most of my life
From high school on I caused much strife
My mouth was harsh with nasty words
My actions full of devilish works

I ran into a childhood friend
Who told that my life could mend
He said that Jesus loved me so
I doubted all the words he spoke

I went to visit him one day
Convinced there was a better way
I bowed my head and softly prayed
Then suddenly by life was changed

If you are headed down a road
That seems to leave you with a load
Cast all your cares on Christ today
He’ll  show you that better way.
