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!

This a glorious song of dedication to the Lord.

I miss singing it with the other dear saints on KNUST campus. Our meetings were always filled with singing and rejoicing in the Lord. Hallelujah for Christ and the church.
