    Never forgot where I came from.

    Depression had me
    And the light stop shining
    In addition, the devil had me
    And Jesus came and grabbed me
    I am here today because He kept me
    Close…

    And now I can tell my story

    Not long ago…
    I went down the wrong road
    He led me back
    Drowning deep and deeper
    And He lifted me up
    Without Him I would not be here

    Thought I didn’t have no friends
    He showed me he was my friend
    No, matter the trouble.
    Brought me in from the rain
    And took me close
    When
    ….when
    I was lost
    Guess what? He found me
    Without Him I would not be here

    See you don’t hear me

    I almost gave up
    Walking around talking to myself
    Crying all the time
    Mad at the world
    Damning myself
    ….I almost gave up
    and He pulled me up
    See He is able

    Do you understand?
    He is preparing me, for His work
    To trust His plan

    See,

    I almost let go
    But he kept me
    He kept me
    Never forgot where I been
    Here by His grace and mercy

    Never forgot where I came from
