Music Mondays: "Jesus Loves Me" by Chris Tomlin

In light of this past Sunday, I wanted to post up this song, which so adequately captures the stories of all 7 candidates--and in fact all our own testimonies as well.

A running theme that I noticed in their testimonies was how the process of making a salvation decision spanned over the course of a few years. God revealed more and more of Himself, and each person learned more and more until finally, they surrendered their lives to Christ. 

I was lost
I was in chains
The world had a hold of me

My heart was a stone
I was covered in shame
When He came for me

I couldn't run, couldn't run from His presence
I couldn't run, couldn't run from His arms

Jesus, He loves me, He loves me, He is for me
Jesus, how can it be, He loves me, He is for me

And it was a fire
Deep in my soul
I'll never be the same

I stepped out of the dark
And into the light
When He called my name

I couldn't run, couldn't run from His presence
I couldn't run, couldn't run from His arms

He holds the stars and He holds my heart
With healing hands that bear the scars
The rugged cross where He died for me
My only hope, my everything
