God Had Me All The Way

I use to try to hang on
to a lifeline from above.
Thinking it was the only way
that I could earn God's love.

But the burden was so heavy -
trying to do it all.
My strength grew weak I lost my grip -
And soon began to fall.

The feeling was so helpless -
My fate out of control.
No matter how I tried to live -
I couldn't save my soul.

Then God reached out to catch me
by sending his own Son.
Into His hands He took my life
salvation had begun.

And now there's only freedom
to live my life each day.
I didn't have to do it all
God had me all the way.
