This Is The Life
Lyrics and Music by: Jennifer Sides


Copyright 2004, Jennifer Sides

I WAS NOT BORN A BELIEVER
THOUGH I WAS SEEKING A HIGHER CALL
I WAS DESPERATE FOR FREEDOM
FROM THE CHAINS THAT HAD ME BOUND
AWAKENED FROM THE ILLUSIONS
THAT CLOUDED MY VIEW
WHEN YOUR JOY FILLED MY HEART
NOW I KNOW THE TRUTH

(NOW) THAT THIS IS THE LIFE
AND YOU ARE THE WAY
THESE ARE THE DAYS
TO WATCH AND PRAY
TO FOLLOW YOUR VOICE
AND TAKE UP MY CROSS
SHINING THE LIGHT
THAT REACHES THE LOST
THIS IS THE LIFE
OH, THIS IS THE LIFE
OH, THIS IS THE LIFE
OH, THE LIFE OF CHRIST

I WAS WALKING IN DARKNESS
BLINDSIDED BY MY IGNORANCE
LACKING THE VISION
THAT LEADS TO REPENTANCE
THIRSTY FOR THE WATER
THAT NEVER RUNS DRY
TILL I REACHED OUT TO YOU
AND YOU OPENED MY EYES
