Ever since I was young, I always tried hard to be happy
But whatever I did, it was only temporary
For every now and then, I’d be filled with anxiety
It was the fear of death that gripped me

When I was a student, I had a friend who believed in God
I’ve always wondered about the different churches’ doctrines
All she said was “it doesn’t matter as long as you believe”
I thought it over, yet deep down, I still wasn’t convinced

Once, I read an article that said December 25 is not Jesus’ birthday
I was surprised, for what was the world then trying to celebrate
I thought they would have known the correct date
It was then I realised that my salvation was at stake

A few years passed by and God led me to His path
I saw a friend doing research on the origins of Sabbath
She shared with me how Sunday service was wrong
And that was how we got along

We met more often in school
And she explained how the cross was used as an execution tool
At that time, I could feel that God was slowly opening up my heart
Yet little did I know, it was only the start

Another year had passed and we headed our separate ways
The words she spoke to me lingered, and God allowed us to meet again
This time, she even shared why our lives are full of sorrow and pain
And so, that was how I was baptised in the New Name

I’ve now embarked on this journey
No matter how hard it may be
I’ll endure all hardships
For the truth has set me free

Thus, this is my story
Thank You, Heavenly Father and Mother, for saving me
