I want a life of joy, reflecting who I am;
I want the world to know where I belong.
My heart's desire is that Christ should be revealed,
That faith would be real sure and love real strong.
That others through my life would recognize my Lord,
Confirming how my walk is greatly changed.
For I now have new life, for I've been born again,
My life through Christ is fully rearranged.
All that I was before is banished to the past,
My slate is clean, my sins are washed away.
No efforts of my own can claim this as reward,
It's through salvation on this glorious day.
It's Christ's great sacrifice, His death upon the cross,
All done in love and of His own accord.
Through Him is my joy, I've righteousness in Christ,
A grace bestowed on me while yet in sin.
The honor goes to Him, the privileges are mine,
The power to live my life complete within.
His suffering set me free, His death has made me whole,
His resurrection opened up the door.
I now claim heaven's peace, I have no cause for fear,
I'll live and reign with Christ forever more.
