Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: My Lord, when first I came to You, You promised me a price: To give up self for life made new, To toil and sacrifice. To give up self, to toil and sacrifice.
Verse 2: But as I lived Your sacrifice, I left the things before; I could not love what once enticed, For now I loved You more. I could not love, for now I loved You more.
Verse 3: In You, I learned that all I’d lost Was worthless, vain, and small, So when I turned to count the cost, I saw no cost at all. So when I turned, I saw no cost at all.
