J Fish — Lord You Saved Me lyrics

(Verse 1)
This is the story of how I was saved,
Life had me down and I felt depraved,
I had no job and I had no money,
And life just didn't seem any bit funny,
I was feeling like Job who lost all his due,
I wanted to give up because I felt so blue,
I kept pushing forward but my hope was dim
I lost my will to think I could win,
At the last moment God stepped in,
I just didn't know that it was Him,
Then the phone rang giving no warning,
I was going to work on Monday morning,

(Chorus)
I am not the same as I was before,
Lord you saved me,
Thank you for the healing in my heart,
Lord your gracious,
Thank you for forgiving my sins,
You are merciful,
Thank you for teaching me the truth,
You are wise,

(Verse 2)
I arrived at work and little did I know,
Little did I know I was about to change,
My boss was a Pastor at a local Church,
And then another manager a Pastor at a Church,
The owner was driven by his ministry in Christ,
Every corner in the building was talk of God,
I fought and denied it so they would quiet,
Months and months of back and forth,
Lunch time, break time, all the time,
So one day I went to lunch by myself,
I met an old man with a heart of gold,
And the words he spoke just broke me down,

(Chorus)
I am not the same as I was before,
Lord you saved me,
Thank you for the healing in my heart,
Lord your gracious,
Thank you for forgiving my sins,
You are merciful,
Thank you for teaching me the truth,
You are wise,

(Verse 3)
Then I decided to get out of town,
An Angel of the Lord tracked me down,
She gave me a message from God Himself,
I couldn't believe it, I was beside myself,
My heart fell soft inside my chest,
I started to melt and tried to protest,
But the spirit came to me and it was over,
I fell to my knees and I started to pray,
And that was the day that I was saved,
God had this planned all along,
He changed my path so I could rhyme this song,
And I've never been the same, Thank you Lord,

(Chorus)
I am not the same as I was before,
Lord you saved me,
Thank you for the healing in my heart,
Lord your gracious,
Thank you for forgiving my sins,
You are merciful,
Thank you for teaching me the truth,
You are wise,
