In jail with Jesus

Alone one night
In shame and despair
I looked for my help
But no one was there,
No future…but prison
No past…but pain
I looked in the mirror
My tears…the rain
By justice condemned
In time to die
My only hope God’s Mercy
For his grace I cry…
Then a seed planted
Somewhere long ago
In the midst of my sorrows
Began to grow…
This seed was Christ
Who died for me
In jail with Jesus
I am set free…
No longer in the hell
Of my sinful ways
He has made me a new person
Who loves and prays
Though seasons come
And holidays pass
In jail with Jesus
My hope does last…
So, I do share
With you my friend
In jail with Jesus
It’s not the end!
