From the time I spoke Your name

1
From the time I spoke Your name,
Lord, my life’s not been the same
Since I called on the only One who’d save me.
When forsaken, in despair—
Who’d have thought that You’d be there!
Now I’ve found out, Jesus, You’re alive!
  Now my eyes begin to see
I’m living as I ought to be,
As this turning, burning God
moves in my heart...
I don’t care now how I feel;
I just know that this is real,
And I know, oh Jesus, You’re alive!
2
All my friends might think it’s square—
Since I touched You, I don’t care—
For I’ve found You’re the only life worth living.
Though some mock and criticize,
Lord, they just don’t realize
That I’ve found out, Jesus, You’re alive!
3
It’s no statue that I call,
Not a picture on the wall,
But a person who lives His life within me.
Wish they’d told me long before,
All You want’s an open door
And that really, Jesus, You’re alive!

It’s no statue that I call,

Not a picture on the wall,

But a person who lives His life within me.

From the time I call your name ...Oh my Jesus You are a true friend . I wish I could sing this song. The first time I listened to it my life changed.

God bless you all the proprietor of the site.

Amen.

An alternate stanza 2 for those of you who have no friends, like me:

Though all around me is despair—

Since I touched You, I don’t care—

For I’ve found You’re the only life worth living.

Though some mock and criticize,

Lord, they just don’t realize

That I’ve found out, Jesus, You’re alive!

Lord, my life's not been the same,

Since I called on the only One who'd save me."
