I found a new love today
As I got down on my knees
And ask Jesus into my heart
To be a part of me.

The love of God is pure and rare
He shows it in many ways
It has no beginning, it has no end
It shows in His creation everywhere.

He promised He would never leave me
No matter how far I go
His Holy Spirit comforts me
When Iím sad and feeling low.

Never has other love compared
For God did send His Son
To die upon a cross for me
And I wasn't even there.

He sends His guardian angels
To watch over me day and night
And then there are those angels
Who my battles they will fight.

And when the battles over
And time on earth is gone
I will see my newfound love
Sitting on the throne.

I had walked life's path with an easy tread,
Had followed where comfort and pleasure led;
And then by chance in a quiet place
I met my Master face to face.

With station and rank and wealth for goal,
Much thought for body but none for soul,
I had entered to win this life's mad race-
When I met my Master face to face.

I had built my castles, reared them high,
Till their towers had pierced the blue of the sky;
I had sworn to rule with an iron mace
When I met my Master face to face.

I met Him and knew Him, and blushed to see
That His eyes full of sorrow were fixed on me;
And I faltered, and fell at His feet that day
While my castles vanished and melted away.

Melted and vanished; and in their place
I saw naught else but my Master's face;
And I cried aloud: "Oh, make me meet
To follow the marks of Thy wounded feet."

My thought is now for the souls of men;
I have lost my life to find it again
Ever since alone in that holy place
My Master and I stood face to face.
