This is my favorite song from our Young People's Songbook.
It goes to a tune of an old rock song - I think the original song may be
called "Killing me softly with his song" - at least that is in the chorus of the
This song really expresses how I feel and felt about my salvation.
1 I just existed empty, not knowing what life was for;
Until one day someone told me
That there was something more;
At first I wouldn't take it - it seemed too simple to me!
Calling His name, "O Lord Jesus!"
Saying, "Amen," when He speaks.
Filling my spirit with His life,
Filling my whole life with His life,
Flooding my living with His life,
Filling my whole life with His life.
2 But then at length I tried it - first softly to myself.
As I called I felt like someone
Sick brought back to health.
The flow of life within me, I'd never felt before.
3 Then as I called on Jesus, I felt that I'd been found!
I was so full; I was calling
"Jesus!" right out loud.
I'd never dreamed that I could know reality by -
4 And now I'm full and happy, so satisfied with Him,
Because He has come and filled me
Clear up past the brim
His life is now my portion - I'll go on all my life, just -
In Christ, Toymom
...be strengthened with power through His Spirit into the inner man, that Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be full of strength to apprehend with all the saints what the breadth and length and height and depth are and to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God. Eph. 3:16-19
